This symposium is supported by the 2022 Taiwan Spotlight Grant Program of the Taiwan Academy of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Los Angeles, which is an overseas office of the Ministry of Culture in Taiwan. Its mission is to present and promote Taiwan's culture and arts in the west coast of North America.

“Photography and Taiwan” explores various ways in which photography has been structuring history and culture, from Japanese colonialism through cold war hegemony in postcolonial Taiwanese society. Hosted by a variety of artists, curators, scholars, and directors, the symposium will cover such topics as changing photographic practices, major photography movements and exhibitions, colonialism, postcolonialism, gender issues, and national identity.

The symposium will be delivered both in English and Chinese with interpreters.
