Northern Institute of Taiwan Studies (NorITS)
The Northern Institute of Taiwan Studies (NorITS) is an interdisciplinary hub of teaching, research, public policy and cultural activities, whose main aim is to promote the development of academic study on Taiwan and take part in social and cultural exchanges between the British world and Taiwan. Established in June 2018, NorITS is the outcome of a coordinated effort by five experts in Taiwan Studies, each approaching Taiwan from a different disciplinary angle, including history, anthropology, gender studies, migration studies, cultural studies, environment studies, literature and international relations.
Their coordinated efforts have contributed to the development of a new narrative of Taiwan Studies looking at Taiwan as a central and autonomous actor in the Asia Pacific region. Historically, it was a centre from which the Austronesian people expanded their cultural and linguistic influence throughout the Asia Pacific, and, in contemporary times, it is a hub between local, regional and global socio-political dynamics. NorITS enjoys the support of an international network of renowned scholars as part of its Steering Committee. NorITS' mission is to nurture the next generation of Taiwan scholars through an engagement with teaching and research practice.
