Posted on Feb, 17 2010

Prof. Gordon Cheung (張志楷), currently staying at the ERCCT as a visiting scholar, held a public lecture on Tuesday, February 16th. Introducing the concept of Liminal Studies, Prof. Cheung combined the concepts of liminality/liminal identity and citizenship and put this to use in a case study on Taishang under the title "To be or not to be Chinese: The Construction of Liminal Citizenship of the Taiwanese". The event attracted a large audience from Tuebingen students even in the time of the final exams.
