PLACE: University of California, Davis

THEME: “Ecologizing Taiwan: Nature, Society, Culture”
Inspired by Felix Guattari’s Three Ecologies, this workshop extends the definition of ecology to encompass social relations and human subjectivity, as well as environmental concerns. With Taiwan as the focus either in itself or within a comparative framework, papers are invited to examine the human, non-human, and post-human Sinosphere as well as the earth. Other topics that study Taiwan from humanistic or social scientific perspectives are welcome too.
FUNDING: Funding for economy-class airfares and hotel accommodations for two nights will be provided for speakers.
INVITATIONS will be sent out by May 31, 2018.
