Synergy Correlation

NCKU's Center for Humanities and Social Sciences launches the 'City Watch, City of the Prefecture' theme activities from September to December 2023. With over 400 diverse events, including concerts, cultural salons, theatrical performances, guided tours, and the NCKU People's Voice Podcast, the program spans two major themes, 'Human Landscape' and 'Century of Livelihood,' across ten dimensions. It aims to guide participants in exploring Tainan deeply, understanding Taiwan's local history and memories, and experiencing Tainan's unique cultural charm. All these exciting events are free to attend, and the public is invited to participate actively.


The NCKU Taiwan Studies Program, hosted by the Center for Humanities and Social Sciences, has been dedicated to establishing an international and interdisciplinary academic collaboration network. It promotes public dialogue and social collaboration by combining academic research, local practices, and social dialogue in a new model to seek sustainable common good. This year's Taiwan Studies Program revolves around the core theme of 'Multifaceted Vision.' The term 'multifaceted' breaks away from traditional singularity, encompassing various essential features and elements. 'Vision' refers to the range seen by the eyes, the perception of viewing, and imagination, always being the primary way to understand the world.


The 'City Watch, City of the Prefecture' series began in early September, featuring rich and diverse content. Renowned experts were invited to participate, including railway research expert Chao-Hsu Su, who delved into 'The Centennial History of Taiwan Railways: Traces and Current Situation of Train History,' and Professor Tsung-Min Wu, Honorary Professor of the Department of Economics at National Taiwan University, who discussed 'Deer and Indigenous Peoples in Dutch-ruled Taiwan during the Dutch Period,' and associate professor Fan-Guan Tseng  from National University of Tainan delivering a keynote speech titled "Weaving Roads Afar: 400 Years of Textile Industry in Tainan." Additionally, there were guided tours such as "From Ox Carts to Pedicabs - A Journey Through Sugarcane," "Tainan 400 - Touring Ancient Temples in the Northern District," as well as the 'Strolling through Rice Street Delicacies' tour. Additionally, there are special events like the 'Rowdy Hot Walking Singing Team' and the 'Tainan 400' concert. The Ancient Capital Puppet Theatre will also perform stories set in the era of Cheng-Gong Zheng's struggle against the Dutch.

The Taiwan Studies Program aims to explore Taiwan and the world through different perspectives and diverse approaches, fostering a deeper understanding and reflection on our environment and society. The team hopes that through this series of activities, the public can understand how historical contexts have shaped perceptions of Tainan, what characteristics and traces constitute Tainan's representation and memory, and how the basic elements and meanings of Tainan have formed. All these exciting events are free to attend, and interested individuals are encouraged to sign up and participate.
