Roundtable for Taiwan Studies Research in the Baltic Region in October

Tallinn University organizes the Roundtable for Taiwan Studies Research in the Baltic Region on 12-13 October 2018. This academic roundtable will provide a platform for Taiwan Scholars in Baltic countries and Finland to meet, network and share information about their research both in formal and informal settings.

The event will contain an open session for Baltic and Finnish scholars to introduce their scholarly work about Taiwan. Furthermore, this roundtable creates a platform to bring together various initiatives among Baltic scholars working on distinct fields of Taiwan Studies, ranging from foreign policy to religion and sociology. Across different universities, countries, and academic fields, the Taiwan Studies framework can provide novel opportunities for cooperation, for generating new resources, and for pursuing new openings together. Thus, this roundtable provides opportunities to discuss future activities to consolidate Taiwan Studies as a specific field of research in the Baltic region.
