2. International Workshop: "'Whither Taiwanization?': State, Society and Cultural Production in the New Era"
Venue: Chang Jung Christian University
Date: April 23-24, 2010

With the funding from the Ministry of Education, National Taiwan Literature Museum and Formosa Christianity and Culture Research Center, GITS organized an international conference to tackle on the timely issue on the state and the future of "Taiwanization" under the Ma administration. The conference was organized to challenge the notion that Taiwanization is on the reserve, if not dead, after Ma's ascension in 2008. Some of the works from this conference have been revised and published in the Journal of Current Chinese Affairs (April 2011)
