On December 15-16, 2018, the Kyushu University Taiwan Program hosted Katakura Yoshifumi, Katakura Mari, and Dr. John Chuan-Tiong Lim for the second annual 台湾事情 symposium.
Mr. and Mrs. Katakura delivered lectures during the first day on the theme of ‘Taiwan’s history and diversity’. On the second day, Dr. Lim (of Academia Sinica) discussed identity issues in Okinawa, Taiwan and Hong Kong in comparative perspective.
Over 100 people attended the symposium over the two days, including both Kyushu University students and members of the public. The symposium was generously supported by the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office (branch) in Fukuoka.
