Visiting Scholars

The ERCCT hosts Taiwanese and European Visiting Scholars who come to Tuebingen during each academic term. They hold lectures or give lecture courses. Most importantly, they take part in the Taiwan Colloquium where they play an active role by presenting their research in terms of both content and methodology. They also discuss and evaluate the ERCCT Research Fellows' projects, thereby helping them to prepare their fieldwork or assessing data brought back from the field.
