Soft Launching for International Conference of Gendering Transformations: Feminist Knowledge Production and Trans/national Activist Engagement (October 28-31)


The National Central Library is proudly to host the Roundtable Discussion “Gendered Engagements with the Covid-19 Pandemic” with Nordic Institute of Asian Studies (NIAS) and Taiwanese Feminist Scholars Association on 7:00-9:00 PM, 15th October, 2021. As we can see from around the world, many people or activist groups have come forward in helping those who are affected by the pandemic in various ways, including providing food and temporary shelter, sharing mask-making skills, and so on. These actions take place to amend for the government’s lack of a comprehensive plan in dealing with such large-scale disaster, but also provide immediate relief to the people in need. These actions need to be recognized, recorded, and analyzed for future references. We invite you to join this online roundtable discussion on these engagements, ranging from raising critical discourses, taking actions, and their impacts on Covid-19 governance, and more.
