Taiwan Colloquium

During the summer and winter terms, all ERCCT Research Fellows and Visiting Scholars meet weekly in the Taiwan-Colloquium to discuss their research projects. Project ideas and intended field studies will be communicated, applied theory and methodology scrutinized and empirical findings gathered in the field critically assessed. The Visiting Scholars play an important role here, as they not only evaluate the Fellow's projects but also present their own research and subject it to open academic debate.
