In Memoriam Bruce Jacobs

Bruce Jacobs stopped by on his travel through Europe's East after attending the 2016 EATS conference in Prague to give a Vienna Taiwan Lecture titled „Taiwan is not China“. He was one of the most prominent Taiwan studies scholar the Vienna Center for Taiwan Studies has ever hosted, and one of the few satisfied with having only the costs for hotel accommodation for his wife Jung Sim, himself and their car reimbursed.

In fond remembrance of Bruce's visit to the Center. Our condolences Astrid and the Vienna Center for Taiwan Studies.
