CALL FOR PAPERS: "SUSTAINABLE TAIWAN"
15th Annual Conference of the European Association of Taiwan Studies (EATS)
Zurich, Switzerland, 4–6 April 2018
Deadline for submission of abstracts to
Regular Panels: 31 August 2017
MA Panels: 31 October 2017
In environmental sciences ‘sustainability’ means ‘the quality of not being harmful to the environment or depleting natural resources, and thereby supporting long-term ecological balance’. However, ‘sustainability’ is more than a recent buzzword and embraces a much broader philosophy and practice. If we consider ‘sustainability’ as an ecosystem, a lifestyle, a community or a world that is capable of supporting itself and its surroundings indefinitely, we believe ‘sustainability’ is an equally important concept for scholars and students of all disciplines – social sciences, arts and humanities, or Taiwan Studies generally.
The 15th Annual Conference of the European Association of Taiwan Studies (EATS) adopts a broadly defined theme of ‘sustainability’ and invites researchers of all backgrounds to address the following questions: How have the people on Taiwan survived political, social and cultural challenges? How may Taiwan contribute to a more sustainable world in the future? What are the issues facing the islanders today to maintain their lifestyles and what solutions to them could be proposed? Are Tsai Ing-wen’s approaches to transitional justice, gender equality, cross-strait relations, economic growth, environment, and cultural development sustainable?
For submission, please send an abstract of 500 words (including 3–5 keywords in Word Document), together with a separate page indicating your first name, surname, affiliation, status (i.e. Faculty, MA, PhD, Researcher), gender and email contact to email@example.com (subject: abstract of SURNAME, Given Name) and cc. firstname.lastname@example.org by 31 August 2017. After a double-blind external review process, we will announce the successful submissions by 30 November 2017.
To encourage junior researchers, EATS will organize special panels for students currently enrolled in MA programmes to practice their presentation skills and to receive critical feedback on their work. The MA panels are not confined by the theme of the conference, although it should be relevant to the broadly defined field of Taiwan Studies. To submit to MA panels, please send an abstract of 300-500 words on a topic of your choice, together with a separate page indicating your first name, surname, affiliation, gender and email contact to email@example.com (subject: MA abstract of SURNAME, Given Name) and cc. firstname.lastname@example.org by 31 October 2017. After a double-blind review process, we will also announce the successful submissions by 30 November 2017.
Accepted postgraduate presenters (PhD and MA students) who are affiliated with European institutions, or the 2018 Young Scholar Award finalists, will receive a travel grant of €150.

AMERICA TAIWANESE PROFESSORS’ ASSOCIATION CALL FOR BOOK PROPOSALS ON TAIWAN’S POLITICAL HISTORY: VIEWED FROM TAIWAN’S PERSPECTIVE
The NATPA has received several book proposals in response to its “Call for writing A book on Taiwan’s political history: Viewed from Taiwan’s perspective,” released in October 2016. NATPA appreciates the enthusiastic responses. All the proposals have merit in their own right; nevertheless, the Review Committee hopes to have a proposal that more clearly addresses the core issue: “to show how the Taiwanese-- in their struggles for democracy, freedom, human rights, equality, stability, prosperity, dignity-- have changed Taiwan’s political landscape and shaped Taiwan’s national identity,” as stated in the “Purpose.”
As such, NATPA has decided to continue to accept book proposals. Therefore, we are reissuing this book proposal solicitation, without changing the contents, except setting a new cut-off date for receipt of proposals in “Time Lines,”
As the Asian countries’ political and economic relations become more complicated, and China’s influence grows, political scientists and policy makers need to know more about Taiwan’s history and her people’s perceptions about their future. As an assemblage of Taiwan’s intellectuals, the NATPA calls for the creation of a book, written in English, on Taiwan’s political history, viewed from Taiwan’s perspective, covering the time period from 1895 through the present, to show how the Taiwanese – in their struggles for democracy, freedom, human rights, equality, stability, prosperity, dignity – have changed Taiwan’s political landscape and shaped Taiwan’s national identity.
II. Financial Support:
NATPA will provide support for the selected prospective author in two stages:
a) In the first stage: NATPA will give a research award of US$10,000 to the selected prospective author, who stands out in items (a), (b), and (c) of Section III Screening Process;
b) In the second stage: After the prospective author completes item (d) of Section III Screening Process (after a draft has been completed), and if the selected author is not a native English speaker, NATPA can assist with help in the editing process.
III. Screening Process:
a) An applicant should have a doctoral degree in history, political science, or a related field, with a strong publishing record in Taiwan studies; no limitation on nationality of applicant.
b) An applicant should provide a resume and a list of publications;
c) An applicant should submit (1) a statement on how he/she defines the “viewed from the Taiwan perspective”, as well as a preliminary outline of the book, expected completion time, and estimated word count, and (2) attach one published essay on issues related to Taiwan.
d) After the prospective author has completed the draft, NATPA will conduct an anonymous review by three qualified experts.
IV. Time Lines:
a) Application materials required in items III.(b) and III.(c) should be received by 15 August 2017
b) The final draft of the book, item III. (d) should be completed and received by 15 September 2019

Conference on Rethinking Transnationalism in the Global World: Contested State, Society, Border and People in Between
7-8 September 2017 University of Portsmouth, UK
Dr Isabelle Cheng and Dr Lara Momesso, two EATS members who specialise in migration in East Asia, have received funding from Chiang Ching-kuo Foundation for organising an international conference entitled 'Rethinking Transnationalism in the Global World: Contested State, Society, Border and People in between' on 7-8 September at the University of Portsmouth.
Attended by scholars from the UK, US, Germany, Japan, Macao, Hong Kong, Thailand, Singapore, and Taiwan, this conference aims at enhancing the theorisation of transnationalism by using the rich experiences of Taiwan as a migration hub in East Asia. The conference will investigate transnationalism in four panels: sovereignty and human rights, infusion of capital, idea and culture, intimacy and negotiation of identity at home, and activism at grassroots level and across borders. Professor Brenda Yeoh, the Dean of Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences of the National University of Singapore, will deliver the keynote speech entitled 'Negotiating Intimacies across Borders: Time, Temporalities and Transnational Families’. This conference will also host the very first overseas screening of See You, Lovable Strangers, a documentary about undocumented Vietnamese migrant workers who 'run away' and find employment in agricultural work in the central ridge of Taiwan. Please join us in our exploration of how ordinary men and women can make a difference to their life when it is constrained by global economy, state institutions, popular discourses and familial hierarchy.
International Conference ‘Civil Society versus the State? Emergent Trajectories of Civic Agency in East Asia in Comparative and Transnational Perspective’
University of Zurich, 13–15 September 2017
Organizers: David Chiavacci (University of Zurich), Simona Grano (University of Zurich) and Julia Obinger (SOAS, UK)
This conference aims to consolidate research on recent interactions and conflicts between states, who try to exert more influence across several fields (e.g. the environment, the labour market, freedom of expression, education) and newly emerging social movements as a counter-reaction to what is perceived by many as an ‘illiberal turn’ on part of the authorities in several countries across East Asia (China, Japan, Taiwan, South Korea and the Special Administrative Region of Hong Kong).
By bringing together different theoretical positions from a variety of disciplines, the relationship between civic awareness and different forms of agency, including resistance against what is perceived as authoritarian decision-making, shall be re-examined.
'Beyond Europe. Politics and Change in Global and Regional Affairs' Conference
Department of Non-European Political Studies of the Faculty of Political Studies and Journalism Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań, Poland 24–25 October 2017

(a) Political and social system in Taiwan in relation to the rest of South-East Asia;
(b) Taiwan in regional and global relations;
(c) Contemporary trade and investment opportunities in Taiwan and South-East Asia;
(d) Social and cultural factors for transformation in Taiwan and South-East Asia;
(e) Taiwan security dilemmas: contemporary challenges and opportunities.

'Art and Translation in Taiwan, Hong Kong and Korea of Post-China Era' Conference
27–28 October 2017, School of History of Art, The University of Edinburgh, Scotland
In Collaboration With Art In Translation Journal and The Taiwan Academy
This symposium plans to open up the discussion in art of the Post-China era in relation to both the historical and contemporary contexts of changing geo-political and cultural identities of Asian locales – Taiwan, Hong Kong and Korea in particular, and the relationship of these issues to visual production. In doing so we are patently interested in accounts that connect with the hybridity of artistic creation, critical conversations across boarders and postcolonial theory to critique – and reposition beyond – the use of visuality and cultural translations developed in the regions under Chinese-influence in a global context (including its autonomous regions and Asian counterparts). We strive to understand how Asian art history, aesthetics and practices conform, translate, defy and synthesize as they demarcate what it designates to be modern and contemporary in specific milieus. Papers will be considered for peer-reviewed publication, to be featured in Art and Translation as a special issue in December 2018. Any queries please contact Dr Chia-Ling Yang (email@example.com) or Dr Li-Heng Hsu (firstname.lastname@example.org).
