AUT 2016 Course: Taiwan Society

August 31, 2016

Taiwan Society

JSIS 583A, Autumn 2016

As a case of rapid social change, evolving identity, and transition from

authoritarian to democratic rule, Taiwan is of unusual interest to the

social sciences. Using recent scholarship, as well as film and fiction, this

course will inquire how Taiwanese identity was forged, how family and

social structure have changed, and how Taiwan’s economy and politics

give it an out-sized role in the future of East Asia.

Taiwan Society (JSIS 583A) is a special topics course that will meet

Mondays 1:30-4:20. Open to graduates and undergraduates.

Instructor: William Lavely
