Global Storytelling: Narrating Childhoods in Taiwan Workshop

April 6, 2023 @ 9:00 am – April 7, 2023 @ 5:45 pm
UCSB Loma Pelona Conference Center, Room 1108


Global Storytelling brings together student “scholars in training” with international experts and community members to engage in critical, collective reflections about ethnographic methods, qualitative inquiry, and stories of growing up in Taiwan. Hailing from three different continents, participants gather at UCSB to learn from and with each other in short presentations, roundtable discussions, methodological training sessions, and collective reflections. Two keynotes–one on language of migrant resistance, the other on funereal silence–and a film screening and director’s talk provide additional texture. Find a complete schedule of the workshop here.

This workshop is organized by the Center for Taiwan Studies and co-sponsored by the Society for the History of Childhood and Youth, the East Asia Center, the departments of Asian American Studies, EALCS, Film & Media, and History, as well as the Interim Associate Vice Chancellor and Dean of Undergraduate Education Michael B. Miller.
