North American Taiwan Studies Association 27th Annual Conference

Taiwan Studies in Application

July 8 - 10, 2022 George Washington University Washington, D.C.

Call for Proposals "Taiwan Studies in Application"

Research and practice are not two mutually exclusive professions. Instead, the boundary between them is increasingly blurred nowadays. This new social trend opens possibilities for thoughtful, creative, and impactful engagement between researchers and practitioners such that they could complement each other for the betterment of our shared world. NATSA has been standing at the forefront of Taiwan studies, advancing the field in knowledge production as well as fostering meaningful interaction between academia and civil society. Hence, our 2022 conference will feature “application” to honor diverse approaches to engaging with Taiwan and Taiwan studies. NATSA looks forward to developing robust relationships, constructive dialogues, and collaborative actions for both researchers and practitioners. While we aim to have an in-person conference next year in Washington, D.C., we will closely follow the situation of the pandemic and finalize the format of the annual meeting in accordance with the local public health guidance.
