This workshop was held as part of a week-long visit of four DEMAND academics to Taipei and specifically to the National Chenghi University. This was the first part of an international partnership and mobility project (funded by the British Academy and Taiwanese Ministry of Science and Technology) that runs for a year until November 2015.
The project is a collaboration between DEMAND and the National Chengchi University in Taipei, and specifically with Dr Sumei Wang and colleagues in the College of Communication. This workshop was an opportunity for all involved to present on their research, on the DEMAND-side drawing particularly from ongoing research and writing in Projects 4.1 and 3.1. There are also web materials in Taiwanese here.
