Abstract

* The author’s research focuses on modern and contemporary Chinese literature, Taiwanese literature, and translation. She is the author of a History of Taiwanese Literature (2007).Evolution of Taiwan StudiesThe study of Taiwan has evolved since the 1950s. Heavily dependent on Chinese and China studies initially, it has become an increasingly independent field since the early 1980s. Today, ‘Taiwan studies’ has grown to be a much more defined multidisciplinary branch of area studies that focuses on Taiwan as a subject of analysis or employs Taiwan as a comparative case study. It should be emphasised that this general statement cannot encompass the complexity of issues facing Taiwan studies, including the contested boundaries between Taiwan and China studies and the never-ending debate between subject researchers versus area specialists. However, regardless of whether Taiwan studies is considered an independent study field or not, it cannot be denied that Taiwan—due to its unique political situation after 1949, remarkable economic growth since the 1960s, and democratic transition since the 1980s—has attracted much interest among social scientists across the world.Therefore, it is not surprising that researchers tend to focus on the social sciences when they investigate the development of Taiwan studies as a whole.
