    Yi-wen Yu, an academic flaneur. In recent years, she wandered through Heidelberg University, Kyoto University, UC Berkeley, and Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. She also roamed through various disciplines: political science, economic sociology, economic and financial history as well as historical sociology. On her tortuous academic journey, a self-imposed question lingered in her mind — as a scholar, what is her and her research’s real contribution to the society.

    The question remains. She is still actively exploring answers. For the moment, she has taken on the role of a knowledge broker, translating unreadable academic knowledge into accessible articles for magazines, newspaper, and websites. Let’s hope that, even under great pressure of career advancement, she can persevere and prevail in her quixotic quest!
