A two-day symposium dedicated to the position of Taiwan in the field of Sinology will be held on Oct. 22 and 23 at the Charles University in Prague.
The areas of discussion will focus on methodological challenges, Taiwan's literature and culture, Sinology studies in Taiwan, and the overall institutional environment.
Speakers at the "Discovering Taiwan in Europe” symposium will include sinologists and renowned experts in the field of Taiwan studies from Europe, Asia, and North America.
Jane Liau from the National Central Library in Taipei will speak about better utilization of electronic resources while David Der-wei Wang, Harvard professor of Chinese and comparative literature, will lead the discussion on new Sinology perspectives.
"Discovering Taiwan in Europe” is co-organized by the Inter-University Center for Sinology at Harvard University and the Chiang Ching-kuo International Sinological Centre at Charles University (CCK-ISC).
The CCK-ISC was established in 1997 by the Taipei-based Chiang Ching-kuo Foundation to promote Sinology and Taiwan studies in Europe.
