We report the findings from the North American Taiwan Studies Association’s Taiwan Syllabus Project. This project aims first to take stock of the Taiwan-related curriculum in the United States and Canada, and then build a database for instructors to access and share Taiwan-related syllabi and teaching resources. Overall, we found 121 courses about Taiwan taught by 106 faculty members. In this report, we present the basic features, instructors’ backgrounds, and key contents of these courses. We also offer some discussions on the results and new directions for future endeavours.
