On October 30th, 2021, IMICS students and faculty members joined the annual international symposium between National Chengchi University (NCCU), Seoul National University (SNU), and The University of Tokyo (UT). With the theme of Staying Connected: Voice and Hope in a Time of Challenge, NCCU’s College of Communication holds the honor to host this year’s symposium.


With 100 participants registered for this virtual event, the symposium shows the strong connection between the three top-ranked universities in communication programs in the Asia-Pacific region. As illuminated in the theme, the NCCU-SNU-UT joint symposium hopes to deliver a positive spirit despite the disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic by sharing research work. The presented papers covered current topics on media and society in the digital age as well as entertainment, health, and political communication. 


“The symposium offers a wonderful opportunity to share our research interest and work that has theoretical rigor and local relevance, specifically through an Asia-oriented perspective. Most importantly, this event enables our students to experience a professional environment where they can practice thinking critically and creatively, which is what the IMICS program is all about.” Professor I-Huei Cheng, IMICS Director, commented.
