The Research Group for Taiwanese History and Culture announces the Fifth Annual Conference on the History and Culture of Taiwan from October 12 to October 15, 2000. The Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures at University of California, Los Angeles will host the conference centered on the theme of "Remapping Taiwan: Histories and Cultures in the Context of Globalization." We invite scholars and graduate students from all disciplines to submit abstracts for conference papers.
The goal of the conference is to promote and exchange research on history and culture of Taiwan in relation to the political, economic, and cultural changes brought about by globalization. Tow major concerns will be highlighted in the conference:1. What are the interrelations between the production of cultural forms in Taiwan and the global cultural production? 2. What are the multiple, diverse, and alternative memories and cultures that have been repressed and released in the globalization process? We encourage proposals of organized panels or individual papers that address the following issues:
Globalism vs. localism;
Identity politics and cultural production in contemporary literature and film in the transnational context;
Collective memories, invisible histories, and the representation of history in the present;
Gender and sexuality as locus of global/local contention;
Space, spatiality, and urbanism;
Technology, virtuality, and culture;
Cultural politics and critical pedagogy.
The deadline for proposal submission is June 30, 2000.
