Research Objectives:
In response to the main them of the joint-project, "Conflict, Justice, and Decolonization," the goal of sub-project V is to foster a Society of Equality and Coexistence in the Inter-Asian Context. It is to follow the site of social conflicts by intervening in its on-going and urgent issues with multiform practices so as to bring about different forms of knowledge production and intellectual decolonization. We aim to establish a cross-regional critical comparison of Inter-Asia society to transcend a single country and develop a broader understanding of geopolitical history. We explore colonization, cold war, globalization, geopolitical economy, migrant workers, refugees, marginalized people, and local resistance from different perspectives such as arts intervention by interrogative design, sensory ethnography, sensory logistics, media ecology, image otherness, image time, and theater knowledge. Our researchers in this sub-project interrogate the social conflicts and issues of inequality from the age of the Cold War to the contemporary era through art forms, including visual art, installation art, documentaries, films, digital media, or theater. These diverse forms of art are essential mediation for us to think about society and history. We focus on historically and geopolitically connected regions such as Taiwan, Hong Kong, China, Northeast Asia, Southeast Asia, and South Asia, through the axes of conflict, justice, and decolonization to conduct our analysis.
