The 21st EATS Annual Conference was held at the Vienna Center for Taiwan Studies (VCTS), University of Vienna on 3-5 April 2024. The conference theme is “Conceptualising Gender, Women and LGBTQI+ in / and Taiwan: Subjectivity, Objectivity, and Every Positionality In-Between.”

UDP participated in the conference as the sole database publisher from Asia. During the conference exhibition, UDP gained authorization for the International Journal of Taiwan Studies (IJTS), which is co-organized by Academia Sinica and the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London. IJTS will be accessible through Taiwan Academic Classics in autumn, 2024. IJTS is the world’s most prestigious academic journal on Taiwan studies, and UDP’s cooperation with IJTS demonstrates UDP’s ambitious pursuits for connecting with the world.
