Chang Chen and Liao Yun-Chang 

WHERE HAVE ALL THE SUNFLOWERS GONE: Dispatches from the Taiwan #OccupyCongress     Student Movement

Wednesday,  April 9   12noon - 2:00 PM   Franklin Center 130

Yun-chang Liao is Assistant Editor-in-Chief of Lih Bao 立報, and Cheng Chang was one of the founding editors of Sifang Bao 四方報—both newspapers are based at Shih Hsin University in Taipei, and have been tentpoles of Taiwan's thriving independent and alternative media scene. 

Sifang Bao is the collective name for newspapers published in five separate linguistic editions—Indonesian, Tagalog, Thai, Cambodian, and Vietnamnese—to serve the present multicultural and multilingual landscape of Taiwan with its growing population of labor and marriage migrants from Southeast Asia. Sifang Bao was the first news media to give voice and provide a platform for migrants in their own languages, a radical concept even in 2006 when it was founded—and it has since garnered both widespread critical and popular acclaim in Taiwan and throughout Southeast Asia. More recently, Cheng Chang has been executive producer of 唱四方, Singing in Taiwan; and he as well as Liao are the founders of the newly established Taiwan Immigrant Writing Awards.
