Jim is a Taiwanese-Canadian blogger and the creator of Island Folklore. In 2015, he started the Island Folklore project after completing his Honours Bachelor of Arts degree at the University of Toronto. The project began as a way for Jim to better explore, connect with and understand his Taiwanese heritage. He manages all content published on Island Folklore.

Jim is a senior web developer at Veloxsites in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. He has contributed articles to Ketagalan Media in the US and #FolkloreThursday in the UK. He enjoys learning about different peoples, cultures, languages and beliefs.

Dr. Susan Chang・susan@islandfolklore.com

Susan is a Taiwanese-Canadian artist and historian of Asian art. She received her Doctor of Philosophy degree in 2013 from the University of British Columbia, where she studied Art History and Visual Art & Theory. Her research focuses on Chinese art history and indigenous Taiwanese textile art.

Susan is an advisor to Island Folklore who provides invaluable assistance and guidance in researching and translating the stories presented on this website. She is currently based in Hsinchu, Taiwan, where she teaches and enjoys creating art on her own time—that is, when she isn’t busy exploring and trekking through the island’s rugged mountains.


Island Folklore is also supported by a dedicated community of volunteers whose various contributions make this endeavour possible!
