In the Gaze of Democracy: Perspectives on 2012 Taiwan Election
CONTACT INFO: Aga Baranowska
Presentations by U of T student delegates to Taiwan
In January 2012, five undergraduate students from the University of Toronto went to Taiwan to observe the 2012 ROC Election. Through interviews with representatives from both the Kuomingtang and the Democratic Progressive Party, social activists, scholars specializing in Taiwan politics, students and local Taiwanese, they gained much insight about the process of democratic deepening in Taiwan, Taiwan’s critical position in the international space and prospects of Taiwan’s future. Alongside their academic research, they also produced a documentary that sets to explore the complexities of Taiwanese identity politics. In this session, the students will share their field research experiences as well as raw footages from the forthcoming documentary.
