Abstract

Boats, Trains, and the Tropics: Japanese (Post)Colonial Travel Writing on Taiwan

During the half century of the Japanese Empire (1895-1945), the East Asian region saw an unprecedented movement of people, goods, culture, and ideas that not only transformed the metropole (Japan) but also strongly influenced its various colonies. Accompanying this newly emerged transnational and cross-cultural mobility, a new type of travel writing, depicting travel between the colonies and the metropole (or even between colonies), also developed to fulfill the curiosity of Japanese readers. It essentially altered the conventional perception of the colonies and knowledge of the outside world. My lecture will focus on three modern and contemporary Japanese writers, whose writings on Taiwan crisscrossed national and cultural boundaries, shedding light on the potential, and limits, of this cultural interface in a period spanning colonial and postcolonial Taiwan.
