Cross-Boundary Dream Pursuers: Taiwanese Painters’ Trajectories in Foreign Countries during the Japanese Colonial Period

On the Open House day in 2018, the Archives of the Institute of Taiwan History featured an exhibition, Travel Memories II—Taiwanese Painters’ Landscape Sketches, from digital records collected by the Archives in recent years. This exhibition selected four Taiwanese painters, Yen Shui-long, Liu Chi-hsiang, Chen Cheng-po, and Kuo Hsueh-hu, by presenting the records of their passports, certificates, photographs, correspondence, and paintings and exploring their life experiences of practicing goals, embarking on adventures abroad, and contributing to society. Let us trace the senior painters’ paths of crossing borders and pursuing dreams by appreciating these precious records and the abundant colors in their paintings!

"Taiwan Diary Knowledge Bank" Now Online for Test Purpose

The “Taiwan Diary Knowledge Bank” (URL: http://taco.ith.sinica.edu.tw/tdk/) on a wiki platform is established by digital archives group at Institute of Taiwan History (ITH). Now it is online for test purpose, and regular researchers of Academia Sinica have access to it. Other users can use it at Historical Records Reading Room, ITH.

This database embodies useful and precious published dairies, including dairies of Chang Li-jun (1906-1937) and diaries of Lin Hsien-t'ang (1927-1940, dairies from 1941 to 1955 will soon be added one after another), inclusive of the full text and annotations attached to them. Users are able to browse the dairy articles by date, and perform full-text search.

Diaries are daily records of one feels and acts, and also the records of social change. They are important historical materials for studying personal history, family history, and the development of economy, society and politics.
