COLLEGE CHINESE - SELECTED READINGS OF WHITE TERROR NOVELS

Taiwan had been shrouded in the shadow of the White Terror during the Martial Law period from May 20, 1949 to July 15, 1987. This political suppression fundamentally influenced the social and cultural structure and future development of post-war Taiwan. Since the 1970s, a large quantity of White Terror related novels has appeared to reflect the trauma and damages inflicted on Taiwanese people and the society. This course focuses on systematic reading and critical analysis of White Terror novels. Students are expected to study and learn 1). the history of postwar Taiwan and the White Terror regime, 2).the harms caused by the White Terror to the body, mind, and soul of Taiwanese people, 3) the importance of transitional justice to reconciliation, and 4) the dialectical relations among literature, culture, society, and politics.
