Prof. Chao-Ju Chen (National Taiwan University- College of Law) is awarded The Junior Researcher Award  by SINICA in Taiwan. Here is the announcement. Her three articles are mentioned and have significant contributions to the understanding of the feminism study in the context of Taiwan’s colonial history. Her research does not only focus on theoretical issues like the dominance theory but also gives particular issues their lives by situating them in the concrete historical and social contexts in a way that make you have a connection with her research topics. The last word in her acceptance “speech” (In fact, it is written) is inspiring: “insistence on science and praxis as a vocation.” (my translation and open to be modified) Here are her three  articles:
