Professional Summary

​GuoTing Lin is a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Westminster, London. She completed a Master in Radio and Television with an observation of reader-writing manner of communication on the Internet from National Taiwan University of Arts (NTUA). She was also awarded an MA degree from the University of Westminster in Communication Studies in 2015. The dissertation may be of importance in exploring the new role of the music of social movement, as well as in providing musicians and activists with a better understanding of how social media relate to the music and the social movement.

 

Her ongoing research focuses on music and culture from Taiwanese indigenous musicians on social media and on social movements in Taiwan. The 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. She had been educated in classical music with majoring in cello and minoring in piano since 6 years old and is interested in music-making and singing. Therefore, she, as urban indigenous people, hopes to seek self-identity that is affected by her mother through the research project.

擁有兩個碩士,國立臺灣藝術大學廣播電視碩士,英國西敏寺大學傳播研究碩士,目前正在英國西敏寺大學攻讀博士,研究聚焦當代原住民音樂、文化和社群媒體的關係。臺藝大碩士論文主題是網路文本的改編,在未有Youtuber詞彙,即蔡阿嘎改編葉問影片問世的年代,因為探查網路崛起,文本相互影響的風潮增加而產生的研究。西敏寺大學碩士論文則探究三一八學運時,歌曲《島嶼天光》英文版在社群媒體上對參與者和沒有參與者的影響。博士論文希望研究當代原住民音樂在社群媒體的影響下,原住民音樂人如何在藉由音樂闡述自己對原民相關議題的思辨,並藉由創作和傳播來尋找認同。由於高中畢業前授超過十年古典音樂教育影響,主修大提琴,副修鋼琴,喜創作唱歌。因此,博士的研究希望用畢生所學來尋找自己受母親影響,但在都市長大的原住民身份認同。
