This article examines the reciprocal interaction between social movements and the academic research in Taiwan since the 1980s. Scholarly attention to social movements has been a multidisciplinary project to make sense of activism from below as well as to foster progressive changes. This article describes the development of this intellectual concern by identifying its founders and the subsequent participants. Secondly, this paper analyses 134 related journal articles from 1980 to 2014, in both Chinese and English language, in order to understand the emergence and the institutionalisation of this field. This report is concluded with an assessment of the field’s strength and weakness.
