Event: Exhibition of the Summer Field Trip to Doulan and Chihshang in Taitung, Taiwan




As mentioned in the earlier blogpost, the students who joined the department summer field trip this year demonstrated their learning outcomes by setting up an exhibition in October. The exhibition involved a holistic point of view of the culture and society of Taitung, including the perspectives of agriculture, landscape and aborigines. It was also hoped to reflect the impacts brought by economic development, urbanization and natural environment to the cultural group.

The exhibition explores various aspects of Doulan and Chihshang in Taitung, including the indigenous Ami people's identity and social organisation, the tourism industry, hand craft, foodway, nature, colonial relationship, agricultural product and demarcation of ethnic groups.

The Opening Ceremony was held on October 13, 2014. Teachers, postgraduate and undergraduate students were invited to join the ceremony. The ceremony started with the welcoming speech from our department chairmen Prof. Gordon Mathews. After Dr. Ju-chen Chen and student representative Eugene Lee introduced the exhibition and the summer field trip this year, all guests started to watch the exhibition while enjoying the refreshment prepared by the students.
