Sugar Island: The History of Taiwan Sugar Industry During the Early Years of Japanese Rule, 1895-1911
Publication Date|2019-03-27
Authors|Shaw-Herng Huang
Press|National Chiao Tung University Press

Synopsis |
From the context in Capitalism to Contemporary Sugar Industry in Taiwan

Due to the Geographical Discovery of the 15th century, sugar has become a world commodity, profoundly affecting the contemporary history around the world. Taiwan has also entered the stage of world history because of sugar. Its importance has not lasted until the 1960s. Before the end of the Second World War, Taiwan was the foundation in modern sugar industry in Japan. 

This book discusses the establishment of Taiwan's modern sugar industry in the early days of the Japanese occupation, covering the commencement Adequate Regulation of Taiwan's sugar industry from the Dutch East India Company to the initial development in the 1860s. It then explains the Required Regulation of the sugar import trade deficit caused by the opening by Japan which was transformed into the Post Sino-Japanese War development of Taiwan's modern sugar industry.  

Although there were equipped with mature mechanical techniques in sugar industry in Taiwan in the early days of Japan-Ruling Era, it was still difficult to control the localsmall-scale farming economy that has taken root and grown in Taiwan for more than200 years. However, the Sugar Club has relied on the sugar policy of the Governor's Office of Taiwan, which has achieved considerable success in the acquisition of rawmaterials through those policies. However, these policies have also become the bottleneck for the development of sugar companies, making the Taiwanese sugar industry in the Japanese occupation period unable to operate independently in the country.

Class That Matters: National Discourse, Gender Politics, and the Representation of Capitalism in Taiwan Literature
Publication Date|2019-03-28
Authors|Elliott Shr-tzung Shie
Press|Socio Publishing
Synopsis |
At the onset of the twenty-first century, postcolonial theory that has been indiginized in Taiwan for nearly three decades is far from losing its discursive significance. Postcolonial theory was first introduced to Taiwan in the 1990s, and since then, it has continued to generate considerable academic interest, informing debates about feminism, queer theory, and aboriginal studies. 

While postcolonial theory in Taiwan has occupied an important discursive space within the field of literary criticism, one important dimension that seems missing from the debates is class. By embracing the trialectics of national discourse, gender politics, and critique of capitalism, this book seeks to explore the degree to which the concept of class informs Taiwanese nativist literature by writers such as Huang Chunming, Wang Zhenhe, Chen Yingzhen, Wang Tuo, and Yang Qingchu. It further hopes to illustrate that the term of “colonial economy” that featured prominently in the debates over Taiwanese nativist literature in the 1970s underpins the way nativist literature reflects and responds to the politico-economic circumstance at home and abroad. 

By way of close readings of representative works of nativist literature, this book rethinks the efficacy of applying the discourse of “economic colonialism” to twenty-first century Taiwan. By combining the postcolonial discourse with an alternative perspective on class, the author hopes to propose a new discursive framework to discuss the challenges posed by a new military and economic power not far from Taiwan that increasingly exerts influence over Taiwan’s political autonomy.

Keywords: postcolonialism, nationalism, class, capitalism, nativist literature, colonial economy

Reviewing Reality, Regarding Humanity: Essays on Forty Years of Nativist Literature(Revised edition)
Publication Date|2019/03/23
Authors|Li-Yun Lin, Chih-Ming Wang, Hsiu-Hui Hsu, and Im Woo Kyung
Press|UNITAS Publishing

Synopsis |
Taiwan's “nativist literature debate” took place between April, 1977 and early 1978. This was an ideological debate in the name of “literature,” and also a second time an ideological struggle started around the idea of the “native” (xiangtu) in Taiwan. An earlier “nativist literature debate” took place in the 1930s, at a time when the “native” meant Taiwan as a colony, and the object of criticism was Japanese colonialism. The core values of the 1977 “nativist literature debate,” on the other hand, were anti-empire, anti-colonialism, and nationalism, and the debate challenged the sovereignty of the anti-communist/pro-US Kuomintang. Articles in this book cover mainly the 1977 “nativist literature debate,” especially on the nativist side. This book also includes one article on the 1930s debate, as well as reflections on the 20th and 30th anniversaries of the later debate.

【出版】Inter-Asia Cultural Studies: Movements Volume 20 Number 1 March 2019

Editorial statement

Inter-Asia Cultural Studies, also known as the Movements project, is a transborder collective undertaking to confront Inter-Asia cultural politics.
The question of culture is among the most important yet difficult facing Inter-Asia today. Prolonged histories of feudal ideology, patriarchy, heterosexism and, within as well as between countries, racism and discrimination against subjugated peoples continue to block struggles for popular democracy. Long-term complex-antagonisms generated by the uneven histories of global capitalism, colonialism and imperialism, the imposed nation-state structure and regressive forms of nationalist identity politics have rendered meaningful dialogues within the region very difficult. At the same time, the globalization and regionalization of technology, economy and cultural production, and the recent breakdown of the Cold War structure, have opened up a unique moment for dialogues within Asia and internationally. Unfortunately, this potentially generative moment has been met with triumphalist sentiment.
Since the 1980s, a pervasive rhetoric of the “rise of Asia” has come to mean more than the concentrated flow of capital into and out of the region. It has come to constitute a structure of feeling that is ubiquitous yet ambiguously felt throughout Asia. Historically, this feeling of the “rise of Asia” is complicated by the region’s colonial past. While Asia’s political, cultural and economic position in the global system will continue to fluctuate, there is a need to question and critique the rhetorical unities of both the “rise” and of “Asia.” Wealth and resources are unevenly distributed and there is no cultural or linguistic unity in this imaginary space called Asia. On the other hand, no matter whether there are common experiences shared by sub-regional histories, there is an urgent need for forging political links across these sub-regions. Hence, “inter-Asia” cultural studies.
The politico-economic transformations across the region in the Post Cold War era have engendered both new social movements and critical cultural studies as forces of decolonization. These forces have given rise to alternative modes of knowledge production, and yet no adequate means exists for the circulation of intellectual work and for interaction among critical intellectuals.
It is at such a pivotal conjuncture that Inter-Asia Cultural Studies has emerged as part of a movement for the ongoing construction and reconstruction of critical Inter-Asia subjectivities. It gives a long overdue voice to the intellectual communities in the region and recognizes its own existence as an attempt to continue critical lines of practices. The journal’s aim is to shift existing sites of identification and multiply alternative frames of reference: it is committed to publishing work not only out of “Asia” but also other coordinates such as the “third world.” Its political agenda is to move across: state/national/sub-regional divisions, scholarship and activism, modalities/forms of knowledge, and rigid identity politics of any form. These movements actively engage with local cultural politics within an ever-changing international environment, where politics is increasingly operating in the sphere of culture, under the dictates of a global cultural industry, mediated by new electronic and information technologies, and shaped by different forms of representation – visual, virtual, financial. This new situation has brought political economy, culture and politics together in different ways, and forced us to create new ways of thinking and acting. For this reason the project is more interested in generating new questions or finding ways of asking questions differently, than providing fixed answers.
Toward these ends, Inter-Asia Cultural Studies will serve as a link between critical intellectual groupings; we are actively building connections with journals and groups in different locales.

A thought crime in a hyper-royalist nation: Notes on Prof. Thongchai Winichakul’s lecture on the Lese Majesty law in Thailand 
/ Show Ying Xin

After delivering his keynote speech at the International Conference of Cultural Studies Association on March 10, in which he, as a historian and a survivor of the 1976 Thammasat University massacre, gave a moving lecture about the unforgetting of the incident, Prof. Thongchai Winichakul turns to the contemporary social condition in Thailand in the lecture next day. He talks about the Lese Majesty law (hereafter LM), or Article 112, a law which seems to be an “exception” to the normative rule of law.

The LM law states that “Whoever defames, insults or threatens the King, the Queen, the Heir Apparent, or the Regent shall be punished with imprisonment of three years to fifteen years”. The number of LM charges has skyrocketed after the military coups in 2006 and 2014, which shows that this highly-controversial legal instrument has been used to suppress opponents and public expressions in the name of protecting Thai monarchy. Significantly, most people arrested for the crime confessed, even though all of them denied committing any wrongdoing, nor were they physically abused by the police. 

Prof. Thongchai first traces the history of the LM law. In old Siam, when the state and the monarch were identical, LM was part of treason though it was less severe if compared to rebellion or defiance of the royal order. After the 1932 revolution which transformed Thailand into a nation of constitutional monarchy, LM was no longer seen as treason and criticism towards the monarchy was allowed if it was for public interests. Nevertheless, after the 1947 coup generated by the alliance between the military and the monarchists, the 1949 constitution stated clearly that the monarchy is inviolable. Article 112 in the new criminal code of 1957 thus made LM a crime against national security, no longer an offense to the monarch as a person. Since then, Thai politics and culture have been caught in the condition of what Prof. Thongchai describes as “hyper-royalism”, the permeation of royalism in everyday life which often involves exaggeration and exaltation. 

After the coups in 2006 and 2014, LM has been abused to serve the purpose of the junta regime which is to intimidate and suppress the critics. Problematic interpretations of the law, unjust process and excessive punishments have made LM the most notorious thought crime in contemporary Thailand. Most violators are denied bail and would be detained during the police investigation for maximum of 84 days. Moreover, under the state of emergency (which was declared after every coup), LM cases will be heard, usually secretly, in the military court which is time-consuming and no appeal process is allowed. More terribly, the harsh sentence (the highest in history is seventy years in jail, for posting/sharing seven Facebook messages) compels the accused to confess as it will reduce the sentence by half. 

According to his research, Prof. Thongchai notes that most of those charged for LM confessed to the crime not because of being physically tortured. Reduction of prison term after confession is one of the reasons, but Prof Thongchai argues that the terrible condition in Thai prison is probably the most decisive factor. However, scholars in criminology seem to neglect the fact that the ideas of “modern prison” are not necessarily applicable to prisons in many countries including Thailand. Also, legal culture and systems in Siam civilization were very much based on Hindu-Buddhist philosophy, and this only nation in Southeast Asia which had not been officially “colonized” undertook a rather different path from its counterparts in the transformation of a modern nation. 

It is noteworthy that after the death of the late King Bhumibol in 2016 and the change of political situation in Thailand (an election to be held on 24 March, first in eight years), there were signs of changes regarding the LM charges as the number of arrests dropped off since early 2018. However, it is still too early to judge.

早在前述1919年〈林德揚君為什麼要自殺呢?〉文中,便可見到瞿秋白引用柏格森生命哲學的觀點,探討自殺這種社會現象的成因。瞿秋白亦引用佛學的概念來闡釋柏格森,譬如以《圓覺經》的經文「欲因愛生,命因欲有」,闡述柏格森的「生命」概念,以佛學的「愛」增補和重寫了「生之衝動」(elan vital)這個概念,與此同時,瞿秋白亦反過來以「生之衝動」概念增補和重寫了佛經中對「愛」的負面理解,將「愛染」轉化為對生命的正面擁抱。再如,以「瀑流恒轉」來解釋「生命的巨流」,也是瞿秋白以佛家概念重寫柏格森哲學的明顯例子。實際上,五四的左翼知識份子,其思想的複雜組構,充滿著如今為冷戰固化的知識結構所難以理解的扞格和對立,例如佛學和唯物論何以能相融不悖?但這樣的雜揉共存,可能才是思想的實情。
