Chun-Ying Wei Assistant Professor

Research Expertise:

Cultural Diplomacy and Relations, Cultural Policy, Arts Administration


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 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, 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.

After my PhD study, I served as a member of the advising committee in Taiwan’s National Cultural Congress in 2017 and contributed to drafting the 2018 Culture White Paper. I also worked as a project co-investigator and a board member for Taiwan Association of Cultural Policy Studies (TACPS). Prior to joining the Graduate Institute of Arts Management and Entrepreneurship at NSYSU, I taught as an adjunct assistant professor in the International Master of Arts Program in Cultural and Creative Industries (IMCCI) at the Taipei National University of Arts.

In addition to academic roles, I am a freelance writer in topics on performing arts management and administration, creative industries, and 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).
