National Central University
  • Inter-Asia/Gender/Sexuality, Colonial/Modernities, Post/Cold war de-colonial critiques and practices
Inter-Asia gender/sexuality studies attends to the dynamism of social differentiation (class, race, age, gender, sexuality, nationality, ethnicity, religion, etc.) and their intersectionality in changing contexts. We strive toward alternative routes than a hegemonic Anglophone and its moral progressivism, as these continue to underwrite regional theorization and knowledge production. We are interested in figurations of gender/sexuality in the Post/Cold-War Asian contexts that arise in assonance and dissonance with multiple historical formations of empire, colonialism, and modernities.
National Cheng Chi University
  • Innovation, Communication, Cultural Governance

The International Institute for Cultural Studies office at National Tsing Hua University organizes the Contemporary Thought Trend and Social Movements research and teaching cluster. The curriculum supported by this cluster has three main themes: "Literary Thought Trends and Cultural Actions," "Contemporary Thought Trends and the Changes in the World," and "History, Politics, Culture, and Society in Asia." The research topics on which this cluster has been focusing in recent years is the "Politics of Memory in Contemporary Taiwan." In order to understand the modes, characteristics, and logic of the politics of memory in contemporary Taiwan, three approaches have been adopted: historical writing, cultural movement, and cultural governance.
National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University - Chiao Tung Campus
  • Asian Modernity, Critical Theory, Artistic Intervention, Migration Studies, Digital Governance
Our program is devoted to critical Asian studies and organized on the basis of themes of “politics, aesthetics, and ethics.” Our research and teaching focus on  the historical context and the structure of institutionalization of Asian modernity for the purpose of rethinking the relationship between modern knowledge production and nation-state formation.
National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University - Yang Ming Campus
  • Visual Culture
Being the first Institute devoted to visual studies in Taiwan, we aim to break the traditional academic boundaries among photography studies, film studies, history of art, visual sociology, technology studies and so on. Our research focuses on the modern period from the 17th century to present, seeking to integrate studies of Asian, Sinophone (including Taiwanese, Hong Kong, and Chinese) and European/American visual cultures. Providing Taiwan academia with an innovative methodology that incorporates these major visual cultures, the Institute aspires to face up to the age of visual cultures. It provides the society with talents mastering visual cultures that are much needed nowadays, and connects with the global trend where notable academic institutions for studies have been set up continually.
