The Humanities in Higher Education and Research in Taiwan: Current State and Challenges

Part of the The Humanities in Asia book series (HIA, volume 2)


Serving as both a humanities faculty member and a humanities advanced research administrator, I witnessed a sort of renaissance of humanities instruction and research at various levels of higher education in Taiwan during the past ten years—followed, unfortunately, by a current sense of vertigo. The following reflections are based on my observations of the recent and current state of, and the growing challenges faced by, humanities faculty and researchers in higher education in Taiwan. Although I cannot claim my observations and reflections are fully representative, they accurately reflect my experiences at the national universities and research institutes in northern Taiwan.
