2022 EACS Conference took place in Czech Republic: “Taiwan Studies” is rising

The 24th biennial conference of the European Association for Chinese Studies (EACS) took place in Palacky University, Olomouc of Czech Republic, from August 24 to August 27, 2022. 600 sinological scholars participated in the conference, including on-site and on-line attendants coming from 30 countries globally. Many papers of Chinese studies focus on “the human rights, law, history, and culture of Ethic minority in China”. Meanwhile, “Taiwanese studies” become much more important than before in EACS. Plus, the Education Ministry of Germany sponsored the research project “Taiwan as a pioneer: local innovation in the dynamics of global megatrends” (TAP) which will most likely become a regular program/department of Taiwanese research in German. Trier University, Ruhr- University Bochum, and Tubingen University mange this project. Owing to Nancy Patricia Pelosi, the Speaker of United States House of Representatives, visited Taiwan in early this August and threatened war crisis between two sides of Taiwan Strait, European countries deeply concern about Taiwanese situations accordingly. As the host country in EACS conference, Czech Republic is specially friendly with Taiwanese while it is always far away from The Mainland China.
