The University of Nottingham's Taiwan Studies Programme in association with Global Taiwan Studies Salon (EATS-NATSA-IJTS-JATS) presents an online discussion and film.
‘Nine Shots’ is a pilot documentary which explores the death of a Vietnamese migrant worker that reminds us of the death of George Floyd and the injury of Jacob Blake. What motivated men and women in the Global South to seek employment in the Global North? How are guest workers portrayed by the media, particularly those who are on the run? What kind of recruitment, employment and migration regimes should be put in place between the sending and receiving states? Who, or what, is responsible for their loss of lives or their suffering of injuries at work or as a result of the use of state force? Does the use of force indicate institutional and societal discrimination?
Panel discussants include:
Dr Chun-yi Lee, (Chair person) Director of The Taiwan Studies Programme, School of Politics and International Relations, University of Nottingham
Isabelle Cheng, Senior Lecturer in East Asian and International Development Studies at the School of Area Studies, History, Politics and Literature at the University of Portsmouth
Tsai Tsung-lung,Film director and Associate Professor at the Department of Communications at the National Chung Cheng University
