I presented my paper Sociolinguistics of Demilitarization: The Changing Social Meaning of Kinmenese Southern Hokkien at the 16th European Association of Taiwan Studies Annual Conference, Nottingham.
This paper uses data I collected for my book, exploring how Kinmenese people talk about the differences between Taiwanese Hokkien and Kinmenese Hokkien. I also shared the perceived language shift to Taiwanese Hokkien I have observed in Kinmen.

Kinmen and Me
I served my military service in Kinmen as an English teaching assistant from 2017 to 2018. During this year, I wrote articles on Kinmen for the Taipei-based media UDN Opinion. My book written in Chinese about the identity politics in Kinmen is in press.
