Feng-yi Chu 朱峯誼 obtained his PhD in Oriental Studies, University of Oxford. His research interests focus on theories of identity, nationalism, social discourses and political ideologies, and he used to work as the programme convener for Taiwan Studies Programme at St Anthony’s College, University of Oxford, and as postdoctoral researcher in the Institute of Sociology, Academia Sinica in Taiwan.
