Posted on Jun, 08 2011

On June 7th, Dr. Tang Chih-Chieh, who is an ERCCT Advisor currently visiting Tuebingen, spoke on his approach to Historical Sociology in his broader undertaking to reexamine Taiwan political development since 1945. The lively discussion focused on the relationship between structure and agency (intentionalism) and the question of comparison for making sense of Taiwan's recent political history. Dr. Tang presented his current research which focuses, among other issues, on the tangwai-movement of the 1970s.
