Congratulations to CMCI doctoral student Jocelyn Yi-Hsuan Lai, who tied for the first place in the fifth Young Scholar Award from the European Association of Taiwan Studies.
She won the award for her essay “Imaging Taiwanese in East Asia: The Taiwanese inter-Asian idol dramas in the twenty-first century” that she gave to the association’s annual conference held in Kraków, Poland.
Jocelyn’s winning essay was based on her doctoral research here in CMCI. She has also published an essay about Taiwanese television, state policy and its interaction with TV in the People’s Republic of China in the journal Mass Communication Research (in Chinese). Her PhD supervisor is our Asian cultural policy specialist, Dr Hye-Kung Lee.
