1. Hill, William Zachary. RECENTERING TAIWAN: COLONIALISM, THE NATION, AND IDENTITY IN TAIWANESE FICTION AND FILM.

Degree: MA, East Asian Languages & Cultures, 2017, University of Kansas

The purpose of this thesis is to examine the variety of factors that have influenced Taiwanese identity formation since the latter half of the twentieth century. This was done with a particular focus on the influence of Taiwan’s various colonial relationships that have been developing at least since the Japanese occupation. This thesis also points to the power of historical narrative in identity formation and the negotiations that take place between “official” government sponsored attempts at creating historical narrative as opposed to the attempts we see by authors and filmmakers to expose crucial events in their own identity formation that has been previously been neglected or ignored. The results of this thesis illustrate how Taiwan’s colonial relationships with Japan and China continue to impact Taiwanese identity, particularly due to the influence of the Cold War. Taiwanese have responded to the influence of the Chinese by creating and propagating an image of a multi-cultural Taiwan. However, this multi-cultural Taiwan still is largely Han Chinese dominated and uses the image of the Indigenous peoples of Taiwan to fit this official historical narrative thus to some extent repeating the ills of earlier regimes.

2. Wang, Chialan Sharon. Nostalgia for the future to come: National consciousness in post-87 Taiwanese literature and cinema.

Degree: PhD, Comparative Literature, 2011, University of Southern California

My dissertation, “Nostalgia for the future to come: National consciousness in post-87 Taiwanese literature and cinema,” discusses the trope of nationhood in Taiwanese literary and cinematic works published since the 1980s. It reflects on the way internationalism and regionalism intersect on the post-Cold war island. I contend that situated within the Asian-Pacific economic structure and the Chinese diasporic communities in the postnational era of globalization, there is a nostalgic tendency to imagine an organic community unique to the Taiwanese experience in literary and cinematic production. My corpus consists of Zhu Tianxin’s works produced since the 1970s through the present, with a focus on her frequently discussed novella, The Old Capital, two locally-invested Taiwanese blockbusters: Wei Desheng’s Cape No. 7 (2008), Niu Cheng-ze’s Monga (2010), and Ang Lee’s Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (1999) and Lust, Caution (2008).; The project builds on the scholarship both in Taiwan and abroad that has been conducted on Taiwan’s postcoloniality and the vexed problems regarding its hybridized native culture. Informed by my research on Taiwan’s self-definition within the flux of globalization and its economically symbiotic and politically ambivalent relationship with China and the U.S., I contextualize a selection of film and literary texts. I examine the way recent Taiwanese cinema and literature manifest an interest in re-defining “native-ness,” as a negotiation with, rather than as a resistance against, the way the island is (mis)represented internationally. This project departs from current studies of Taiwanese literature and cinema that emphasize the way the end of the Cold-War era and the onset of late capitalism gave rise to a wave of cultural production thematized by alienation, disorientation, and the collapse of traditional values. I read in these selected works and their reception a re-invention of Taiwanese community consolidated by romanticizing colonial experience and historical trauma as well as reconstructing pre-modern national myth. Such is a community that, nonetheless, is “new” and projects a global vision in its desire to keep up with international trends. This nostalgia recasts the island’s imaginary relationship with Republican China, turns the Japanese colonial legacy into cultural consumption, and aspires to a global visibility, which in turn shapes the island’s self-ethnographization.; The dissertation not only introduces a different aspect of postcolonial studies by foregrounding the singularity of Taiwan’s postcoloniality after Japanese colonization and KMT rule under martial law. It also participates in the discussion of transnationality specifically attributed by scholarship on Chinese-language films to Taiwanese cinema after entries of Taiwan New Cinema garnered prizes in international film festivals since the late 80s and began attracting worldwide consumer and academic attention to the island as a separate entity from China. In this project’s investigation into the way the island’s… Advisors/Committee Members: Lippit, Akira Mizuta (Committee Chair), Nguyen, Viet Thanh (Committee Member), Cheng, Dominic (Committee Member).
