[New Platform] CONFLICT, JUSTICE, DECOLONIZATION: CRITICAL STUDIES OF INTER-ASIAN SOCIETY
The “Conflict, Justice, and Decolonization: Critical Studies of Inter-Asian Society” (CJD) project is the brainchild of the graduate students of the International Center for Cultural Studies (ICCS) and the Institute of Social Research and Cultural Studies (SRCS), National Chiao Tung University (NCTU). Launched in 2018, the project was envisioned as a platform that will encourage graduate students to participate in different collaborative academic projects under the general theme of Conflict, Justice, and Decolonization. The project continues to contribute to raising awareness on many relevant issues through research-based publications. Thus far, around 70 articles that cover various topics have been published. An archive with links to distinguished websites relevant to student’s work has also been built.
The success of the CJD project can be attributed to its ethnically and culturally diverse team members and contributors. The core team, composed of doctoral students from NCTU-SRCS, produces outputs that feature different historical, socio-cultural, economic, and political issues from various countries on a regular basis. They also take the lead in managing and maintaining the platform.
The project also has several contributors from NCTU and other universities. Contributions of graduate students from Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Vietnam, India, Palestine, South Africa, Spain, Belgium, Poland, China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan make possible the exchange of knowledge and experiences among international and local students outside the confines of the classroom.
