The Taiwan Studies program at the University of Alberta is an interdisciplinary project which studies Taiwan’s social and political transformations. The program supports student and faculty research and host conferences, webinars, a Taiwan film night, and much more. We count among our affiliates scholars from the departments of East Asian Studies, History, and Political Science. Their areas of expertise pertain to such topics as Taiwan’s history, culture, and identity; democratization and political reform at local and national levels; cultural, racial, and gender tensions as seen through the lens of popular literature, film and civil society.
