May 20-21, 2021. ONLINE conference
After months of assessment and consultation with other Taiwan Studies organizations, NATSA has come to the conclusion that holding an in-person conference in the U.S. would not be safe nor feasible for scholars, especially those traveling from Taiwan (e.g., mandatory quarantine upon arrival, institutional freeze on travel reimbursement).
Nonetheless, NATSA will host a virtual conference including keynote talks, interactive panel presentations, and networking sessions.
NATSA is a US-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization registered by the state government of California. It is established and operated by overseas Taiwanese and North American Ph.D. students and recent graduates interested in studying Taiwan. The NATSA annual conferences are the largest academic events on Taiwan Studies in North America. We not only provide scholars and students of Taiwan Studies with a regular forum to meet and exchange intellectual ideas, but also allow researchers on East-Asia and beyond to receive dynamic feedback and broaden their academic horizons.
