9789087281724: Memory Contested, Locality Transformed: Representing Japanese Colonial 'Heritage' in Taiwan (Archaeological Studies Leiden University Press)

Since the 1990s, Taiwan has experienced a “memory boom”—an acute interest in the country’s past—which has led to an increasing number of museum and heritage sites. Remains of Japanese colonial reign are part of this shared history, and their preservation plays a fundamental part of the new identity and cultural narratives of Taiwan at the end of the twentieth and beginning of the twenty-first centuries. Delving into the colonial power structure arena, Memory Contested, Locality Transformed presents the extreme complexity of sharing the Japanese colonial past in postcolonial Taiwanese society.

Book Description Leiden University Press. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Memory Contested, Locality Transformed: Representing Japanese Colonial 'Heritage' in Taiwan, Min-Chin Chiang, Min-Chin Chiang presents the extreme complexity of sharing the Japanese colonial past in postcolonial Taiwanese society. In this book she examines possibilities of decolonization through community-based heritage activities. Problems and ambiguity stemming from the tentative transformation from colonialism to locality help to trigger further thinking or warn against the ideological trap of taking mutality in 'sharing' the past for granted. Hence, decolonization does not necessarily mean 'removing colonial material traces'. Preserving colonial sites through recognising their contested nature, actively exploring and engaging controversial voices, insisting on exploring the historical depth of every memory version attached to the site, and transforming structural inequality with persistent locality building would better contribute to trigger a decolonizing process.
