Resistance in the Era of Nationalisms: Performing Identities in Taiwan and Hong Kong collects eight essays to examine how people in Taiwan and Hong Kong exercise democratic self-rule, fully embody their local identities, and become global citizens, despite the big-power politics between China and the United States. These chapters, plus Taiwan's Digital Minister Audrey Tang’s interview as epilogue, address topics ranging from the rhetoric of political leaders and the language games of mass protesters on social media to resistant street performance. Co-editors Hsin-I Cheng and Hsin-I Sydney Yueh will talk about various forms of resistance in the book and in the process of writing this book.

From 4:30 to 5:00 you are invited to join us for refreshments and conversation.  The talk will begin at 5:00pm.
