The 4th World Congress of Taiwan Studies (WCTS) will be held at the University of Washington in Seattle, USA, from June 27th through 29th, 2022. The general theme of this Congress is Taiwan in the Making.
Our theme explores the processes, forces, and dynamics that made and continue to make Taiwan. We welcome applicants to propose research papers on Taiwan from the social sciences and humanities. The Congress will highlight a number of sub-themes throughout various panels and roundtables, such as (but not limited to):
- "Worlding" Taiwan: Taiwan in Global Context
- Contested Sovereignty: Taiwan in Comparison
- New Directions in Taiwan Studies
- Consolidating Taiwan's Democracy
- Gender and Society in Changing Taiwan
- Environment, Ecology, and the Future of Taiwan
- Ethnic Identity and Diversity in Taiwan
- Taiwan History through Primary Sources
These topics are merely examples, and we encourage applicants to submit applications in any field or area of focus broadly under Taiwan Studies.
Please submit a one-page long abstract (no more than 600 words) and include the following information: Author(s) Name, Paper Title, Email, Current Position(s), and Affiliation(s) to: [firstname.lastname@example.org]
Accepted participants will be provided on campus accommodations for up to 3 nights from June 27 to 29. Accepted participants traveling from outside of North America will receive up to 4 nights (June 27 to 30). Breakfast and box lunches are provided, as well as dinners on the first two days of the conference.
For junior scholars (PhD candidates, postdoctoral fellows, adjunct faculty, and independent scholars) who do not have access to institutional funding, the WCTS may be able to offer a modest, partial subsidy toward airfare. Details will be arranged after proposal acceptance.
