CrossAsia Entry: Research Unit on Taiwanese Culture and Literature
= Forschungsstelle für taiwanesische Kultur und Literatur
http://www.ruhr-uni-bochum.de/slc/taiwan.html (Department of Chinese Language and Culture, Ruhr University Bochum, Bochum, Germany) Citation: Since the early 1980s, under the leadership of the late Professor Helmut Martin (died June 1999), the research activities of the Department of Chinese Languages and Literatures of the Faculty for East Asian Studies focused increasingly on Taiwan, in particular the country's cultural development. It is thanks to the commitment of Professor Martin that the Department has at its disposal one of the largest research libraries on the subject of Taiwanese culture and literature in Europe. A three-year project, funded by the Chiang Ching-kuo Foundation for International Scholarly Exchange in Taipei, Taiwan, R.O.C., which got underway in September 1999, aimed to establish the "Research Unit on Taiwanese Culture and Literature" as a forum of contact and cooperation in the field of Taiwan Studies in order to counter the marginalization of Taiwan research. The "Research Unit" was inaugurated on 13 November 2002 as an official part of the Faculty of East Asian Studies, Ruhr University Bochum. As such, it will continue to expand its cooperation with Taiwan specialists and institutions and consolidate its standing as a platform for scholarly exchange in the field.
