A New Graduate-Level Introductory Course in Taiwan Studies.

The Graduate Institute of Taiwan Studies (GITS) at Chang Jung Christian University announces the opening of a new graduate-level course in Taiwan Studies. The course covers a wide range of issues affecting present-day Taiwan, such as historical-political development (decolonization and democratization), contemporary society (gender, ethnicity, national identity), and cross-Strait relations (political sovereignty and economic integration). The course not only provides basic knowledge about Taiwan, but also examines, through a critical and comparative perspective, some of the major issues confronting the island nation. In addition to regular lectures, the course will feature special lectures by renowned international scholars.
