Chun-Ying Wei Assistant Professor
Cultural Diplomacy and Relations, Cultural Policy, Arts Administration
The Economics of Arts, Strategic Writing
Born in Taiwan, I received my BA degrees in Philosophy and Sociology (double major) from the National Taiwan University. After working as an arts administrator, I followed my desire for professional development and embarked to study in London. I studied MA in Arts Administration and Cultural Policy (Pass with distinction) and later completed my PhD in Goldsmiths, University of London.
Intrigued to research further on issues in cross-cultural exchange and cultural identity, my doctoral research examined the relation between Taiwan’s cultural diplomacy and cultural policy. Cases of the performing arts in Taiwan were chosen as the focus of my research and analysis. I further contribute my research expertise as the co-editor of the book Taiwan’s International Cultural Relations: Culture as a Method （臺灣的國際文化關係：文化做為方法 in Chinese, ISBN 978-957-732-641-6）.
For professional services, I have served in the board of directors of Taiwan Association of Cultural Policy Studies since 2018. In 2022, I joined Taiwan Association for Arts Management and Education as a board member, and I have participated in the International Cultural Relations Research Alliance.
In addition to academic roles, I am a freelance writer for issues on performing arts management and administration, creative industries, and the British culture. Many of my articles can be found in the Performing Arts Redefined (formerly Performing Arts Review, in Chinese) and UDN Global (Online, in Chinese).
