2021 NCKU International Conference on Taiwan Study: TAINAN, the Sea-Faring Harbor City

To deepen the research on Taiwan Study and to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the establishment of NCKU, as well as welcoming the upcoming event of the 400th anniversary of the establishment of Zeelandia, 2024, the College of Liberal Arts plans to hold an international academic conference on Taiwan Study entitled <<TAINAN: the Sea-faring Harbor City>> on November 26-27, 2021 (Friday & Saturday). It aims to trace back to and explore the formation and development of relationships NCKU has, respectively, with Tainan, Taiwan, and the world.
