| 108 || 洪仲彥 || Time passes. It was 1991 when I attended Department of Foreign Literature and Languages of NCHU as an undergraduate freshman. During the some 25 years after my graduation, I served in the army, worked with a publisher, and received a Master’s Degree in Foreign Literature and Languages in National Chung Cheng University, respectively. I am now a teacher of a senior high school in Changhua County and have been teaching here for 15 years. Life is busy and life is not easy, but I will surely enjoy the amazing opportunity to come back to my old school around the old corner next to the old Dark Forest and learn things about my old Taiwan. |

| My name is Mark Wilkie and I am a South African expatriate residing in central Taiwan. I’m delighted to have been accepted into NCHU’s International PhD Program in Taiwan and Transcultural Studies to pursue my academic interest in historical memory and war memory in Taiwan. The broad scope of the program has also allowed for me to further my studies in film, which has enriched my work as a professional documentary screenwriter/producer and university lecturer. I undertook my graduate studies in Taiwan so this is my second experience as a student in Taiwan. Something that I have found encouraging about this program has been the willingness of senior faculty to assist and engage. I now look forward to beginning my second year in the program in the fall. |

| My name is Pattarapong Kongwattana, a Thai PhD student in this international Program. Despite the dedication to Critical Theory after receiving Master’s degree in Chinese Language and Philology from Beijing Normal University in China, I also have a keen interest in Sinophone literature and film studies. In order to develop my research skills, I applied Ecofeminism and Film Theory to interpret the animation, Moana. The article “Moana (2016): negotiating patriarchy from ecofeminist perspective” which was published in a Thai academic journal this year was one of the successes of my self-study process. Besides, I still have great enthusiasm for Chinese Science Fiction. During my PhD study, I focus on applying Posthumanism and Ecocriticism Theory to study Mainland China’s and Taiwan’s Science Fictions since 2000. I also strongly believe that studying “Chinese” science discourse in literature not only makes us understand the national identity but also paves the way for exploring the movement of thoughts that how “Chinese” people think of the globe and the Earth. |

Sometimes I would stay in a place months and sometimes several years, being Melbourne (Australia), Bogotá (Colombia) and Taipei (Taiwan) the places where I spent most of the time and where I developed most of my academic and artistic projects. My bachelor degree is in communications and media (advertising and journalism), I have diplomas in film, photography, printing and a master of arts. Currently, I have been given the opportunity to develop my research in dark tourism and difficult cultural heritage sites at the International PhD Program in Taiwan and Transcultural Studies at NCHU, where I am looking forward to make a contribution to the field. |

| 106 || 李嬑蒨 || Persisting in carrying out the plan of future is my habit. To reach the goal, I always try my best through carefully mapping out the schedule with a hope that life will go as expected. Keep being an optimistic and responsible person, and try to do the best, I firmly believe that life is a perpetual surprise. Everyone has his/her position, and will get his/her beautiful future. |
In the process of studying in the university, in addition to the relevant courses in the philosophy, I also took courses on cultural studies, such as female literature and gender studies, which enlightened my initial understanding of cultural studies. Now I am learning a new language- French since 2013. In the process of learning foreign languages, I understand the characteristics of the language and its cultural background, which is also a kind of cross-culture exchanges. Through different language study, it can be easily seen that the culture effects on different country.
Learning new knowledge, then practicing in my daily life are always my life values. Caring for many international issues and utilizing the theories for living are important. For the future, it must be hard with many challenges, but I really enjoy in the process of overcoming the obstacles and completing the tasks.
| 105 || 張庭魁 || Taiwan inherent culture diversity since its location as gateway, so should be face to multiculturalism inevitable. When different culture interact each other could be result in positive or negative, and the results depend on how we deal with multiculturalism issues. We may obtain another country experience who ever met multiculturalism issues. Especially, we can focus on East-Asia who experienced post-colonial society in the same situation with Taiwan alike, also observed those countries who face and deal with culture diversity in early time. Theses experience may become knowledge to help Taiwan deal with multiculturalism issues by more tolerance and peace way along with progress finally. |
As a public servant, I try to find out a way to promote harmonious cultural interact environment, and wish to apply to my cultural administration related project. To enrolled PhD program in Taiwan and Transcultural Studies, National Chung Hsing University inspired me to discovered new world in cultural study. I enjoyed the benefits of several teacher’s inspiration because their plenty knowledge and wide learning. However, I still struggled with my poor English and appreciated my sweet teachers, classmates to tolerate my clumsy English ability.

| Being a Dutchman and having lived in Taiwan for several years, I am very happy to have been given the opportunity to enter the International PhD Program in Taiwan and Transcultural Studies and pursue my academic interests here at NCHU. As set out in my study plan, with my research I hope to contribute to the discussion on the issue of acculturation. Looking for a scientific structure and theoretical framework for my own experience of acculturation in Taiwan, I want to bring a project into the program that is mostly a longitudinal, qualitative self-narrative study set against the backdrop of acculturation theory. |
| 104 || 凃秀蓮 || Having great interests in cultural issues, I expect myself to devote to Taiwan and transnational studies. Graduated from MSc Education at the University of Edinburgh, I have been teaching English as a second language for a decade. Knowing a language is not merely a tool to convey messages but to transmit certain cultural concepts, I know I have to equip with more cultural literacy to apply in my class. Born and growing up in Taiwan, I always have a strong sense of responsibility to promote Taiwanese culture. Through the PhD Program of Taiwan and Transcultural Studies, I hope I can present the depth and width of Taiwan beauty to the world. |

| An inherited love for music and an acquired addiction to Chinese languages and characters have informed the better part of my private and academic life. Baroque and Renaissance music, rock'n'roll and punk, among others, have been important through different stages, but it is lam-koan (南管 nanguan) music and drama in contemporary Taiwan that have been at the center of my academic pursuit since 2009. I am particularly interested in the experience of music making and how it relates to identity questions entangled with gender, class, and notions of ethnicity. |
