Inhalt

In this interactive talk Dafyydd Fell takes his audience on a journey through Taiwan's political history from 1945-2000 through the lens of political advertising. Through content analysis of eleven TV advertisements, he will discuss alternative partisan perspectives on this period and the development of multi-party politics after democratization. When looking at the advertisements he will ask the audience to consider what is good political advertising? The talk is also semi-autobiographical, as Dr Fell discusses how he made the transition from a University of Leeds Chinese Studies student to a political scientist specialising on Taiwan.
