An agreement between UCLA and the government of Taiwan, signed July 5 in Taipei, will fund the Spotlight Taiwan Program at the Center for Chinese Studies.
UCLA professor and cultural anthropologist Yunxiang Yan, who studies cultural globalization in China and is director of the Center for Chinese Studies at UCLA’s International Institute, will oversee the programming. Funding for the first year will include a film festival of up to 10 films, a lecture series on civil society in Taiwan, and two to three public events featuring traditional and contemporary Taiwanese arts.
