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.
