Podcast Series: Taiwan On-Air 空中直播台灣

17 January 2022

The NorITS (Northern Institute of Taiwan Studies) team at UCLan has started a new project, named Taiwan on Air 空中直播台灣, a podcast series on Taiwan. The first episode is out now, with more episodes to come!

Series introduction

What is Taiwan for the world and the world for Taiwan? In this podcast series, a group of Taiwan specialists based at the University of Central Lancashire, chat with book writers, artists, directors, professionals from, or with, an interest in Taiwan and explore how the ‘little’ island of Taiwan can be a starting point to (re)think the way we look at the world. Whether you already know Taiwan, you want to know more about it, or you just want to be inspired by it, this is the podcast for you!

First Episode

In this podcast, the host, Lara Momesso, interviews Dr Dominic Meng-hsuan Yang, author of the book The Great Exodus from China: Trauma, Memory, and Identity in Modern Taiwan published by Cambridge University Press in 2020. The two scholars chat about important turning points in the production of the book, the author’s positions. Most importantly, how the author proposes solutions to decolonise trauma and find reconciliation in Taiwan. This episode can’t be missed by those interested in historiography, diaspora studies, trauma theory and Cold War period in relation to Taiwan.
