Researching on  
music to seek the 

self-identity.
The digital way.

This is me

I'm a doctoral researcher at the University of Westminster. My research focuses on music and culture from Taiwanese indigenous musicians on social media and on social movements in Taiwan. The ongoing research is trying to explore how indigenous musicians communicate their perspectives of indigenous culture and issues to audiences through self-presentation on social media for rethinking the self-identity. 

我是英國西敏寺大學的博士候選人,研究聚焦於臺灣當代社群媒體上原住民音樂人的傳播方式,包含音樂作品與原住民文化,以及在臺灣的社會運動。正在進行的研究試圖探討原住民音樂人如何透過在社群媒體上的自我展演來傳播他們對於原住民議題與文化的觀點,來重新思考自我認同。

To depict the cartography of the communication between Taiwanese contemporary indigenous music and the social media, and to explore how indigenous musicians convey their identity and culture through musical appropriation, collaboration and the self-presentation of their daily lives online to their audiences, the methodology adopted for this research will be in-depth interviews and digital ethnography.


Indigenous people in Taiwan reconstruct their identity in the online world and experience new ways of interacting through participation. In this process, new cultures and societies continue to emerge and they give people a distinct approach to imagining the world. This research discovers a new orientation for positioning the new indigenous identity, which is integrated with the contemporary indigenous culture, through exploring the interaction between indigenous music and media.
