My Fulbright Journey in Taiwan: Language-Discordance as a Social Phenomenon

Written by Elaine Hsieh 謝怡玲 Friday, 22 April 2016 10:53
    Social worlds and social relationships are created, maintained, and resisted through human communication.

This is particularly important when working with marginalized and underserved populations, whose voices are often deprived and silenced, resulting in disparities in their everyday life. These are the values that have driven my research program for…
  As an individual with Manchu and Sibe language skills and an interest in the development of Manchurology, I am following closely a situation in which two scholarly camps have engaged in a fight with virtually no results.

The house, constructed of steel bar reinforced concrete, resembles nearly any other solafo, or concrete slab, house you might see around this town, which perches on a cliff above the Pacific Ocean.
