Taiwan is not China: aborigines, colonial rulers and democratisation in the history of the beautiful island
Department of International Relations public lecture
Date: Tuesday 30 April 2013
Venue: New Theatre, East Building
Speaker: Professor Bruce Jacobs
Bruce Jacobs critically examines how the history of Taiwan was constructed to present the island as a part of China under the authoritarian Nationalist regime and how it is still presented in this way in the People’s Republic of China.
Bruce Jacobs is professor of Asian languages at Monash University, Australia, and one of the world’s leading authorities on the political history of Taiwan.
