About SHIH Chih-yu

SHIH Chih-yu is National Chair Professor of the Ministry of Education and University Chair Professor of Political Science at National Taiwan University. With his concept of Post-Chineseness and combining the fields of international relations, cultural politics, and intellectual history, Shih boldly challenges the essentialized notion of Chineseness in existing scholarship through the revelation of the multiplicity and complexity of the uses of Chineseness by strategically conceived insiders, outsiders, and those in-between. He is the author and editor of many books, including Colonial Legacies and Contemporary Studies of China and Chineseness: Unlearning Binaries, Strategizing Self and Post-Chineseness: Cultural Politics and International Relations.
