Where did I Leave My Footprints? Lin Xian-tang’s Journey to Europe
Lin Xian-tang (1881-1956), one of the figures in Traveling in Time Exhibition, was the leader of the Lin Family from Wufeng, Taichung. On May 15, 1927, he took the Fengshan Ferry from the Keelung Port with his two sons Pan-long and You-long starting to travel around in Europe and America. They spent 378 days visiting ten countries including the United Kingdom, the United States, France, Italy, Germany, Denmark, the Netherlands, Belgium, Spain and Switzerland. In his diary, Lin Xian-tang wrote of what he had seen in his journey and hoped to broaden Taiwanese’s knowledge of Western culture. Now, let’s follow Lin’s steps by reading The Diary of Mr. Guan-yuan in 1927 to visit Europe!
"Her History in Taiwan" Exhibition and Symposium Series

"Her History in Taiwan" Exhibition and Symposium Series

From March 29 to October 31, 2011, the Institute of Taiwan History (ITH) holds a special exhibition, entitled "Her History in Taiwan", on the second floor of the Joint Library of Humanities and Social Sciences. More than 60 exhibits are selected from the digital archives of the ITH, including marriage documents, contracts, photographs, diaries, and personal documents. This exhibition presents and represents histories of women and gender from various perspectives.

In order to promote studies on women's and gender history in Taiwan and to enrich the exhibition, the ITH will organize a series of symposiums and lectures and invite scholars and important women predecessors to share their precious experiences of life, as well as to examine the past and future development of women's history in Taiwan. Through these events, we hope to not only encourage more devotion to researches on Taiwanese women's history but also combine personal life stories with historical records to resonate the experiences of the public.

In the very first symposium, several outstanding female scholars in the filed of women's history are invited to share their experiences in studying women's history. Welcome to join us!
