Students of IMICS Joined Annual International Symposium Between SNU-UT-NCCU

Updated: Nov 8, 2021

On October, 30th 2020, NCCU IMICS students, together with professor Ting Yu Kang, Tsung Jen Shih, and Jhih-Syuan (Elaine) Lin, joined the annual international communication symposium hosted by The University of Tokyo under the theme “Media, Communications, and Information in an Era of Global Crisis”. The symposium was organized with the participation of the faculty and students from Seoul National University, University of Tokyo, and National Chengchi University.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the symposium was organized online and divided into three sessions, each covering a distinct communication field including Body and Pandemic; Media, Journalism and Gender; Space, Technology and Policy. Each student had a 10-minute presentation on their paper and a 10-minute Q&A session for further opinions and feedback from professors as well as other students. After the paper presentations, students from all three universities got a chance to gather around for a plenary session where they had discussions on given topics revolving around the current COVID-19 pandemic.

“I am very excited because I got to finish my very first symposium. Even though it was held online because of COVID-19, I really enjoy it and learned a lot from the in-depth feedback from many different students and professors with various backgrounds. That’s why I am really grateful and it was truly an interesting experience for me.”

Professor Ting Yu Kang, Director of IMICS

“COVID-19 has made quite an impact in the academic research field and we are not an exception. Even though the professors and our students did not get to travel to Japan and enjoy the beautiful country’s fall season, I think this year’s online symposium ended very well and people from different cultural backgrounds came together to share their experiences on the global crisis we are currently having, which I find extremely interesting and rewarding.”
