On Wednesday, June 24, 2020, the ERCCT, in cooperatin with China Centrum Tübingen (CCT), presented a talk and discussion with Chris Berry, professor of film studies at King's College London, online. Entitled "Modernity, Gender, Sexuality: Social Values in Taiyupian", the talk referred to two Taiwanese movies that are part of the project on taiyupian 台語片, "Taiwan's Lost Commercial Cinema" (by film scholars Prof. Berry and Dr. Ming-Yeh Rawnsley). One was "Foolish Bride, Naive Bridegroom" 三八新娘憨女婿, a comedy from 1967 by Xin Qi, and the second, "Like Father, Like Daughter" 前世情人的情人, was a modern sequel to the first. Both films have been available to registered users to be viewed online for four days prior to the event.
Due to the current Coronavirus pandemic, we have decided to postpone the ERCCT Young Scholars Workshop 2020 from June/July to December 13 to 19, 2020!
