The next CORE talk:
Hsiu-Zu Ho presents the lecture “Beyond the Breadwinner? Father Involvement in Taiwanese Society” on April 16.
In recent decades Taiwan’s dynamic socio-economic growth and political transformations have brought changes to a number of traditions, including gender roles. In this presentation, Professor Ho will discuss her Fulbright experience in Taipei (2012-13), Taiwan and her research on father involvement in Taiwanese society. This body of research uses both quantitative and qualitative methodologies and covers investigations on: progressive portrayals of father roles in Taiwanese cultural media; mother-father differences in parental role beliefs; mother-father differences in participation of specific activities; the various roles of fathers in today’s Taiwanese society; and the direct and indirect influences of father involvement on student academic achievement.
