Description

The topic of conflict and resolution reflects the interests of scholars of medieval studies in Taiwan, who explore how order emerges from chaos in the light of their own experience of how eastern and western cultures variously express ideas about stability and innovation and the ways in which medieval culture contributes to our understanding of the significance and impact of conflict. The papers in this session consider how love is a cause of conflict and discord, the tension between violence and transformation that leads to conformity and innovation, and the ways in which the conflict between eastern and western cultures may indicate a quest for commercial benefits.
