100 Years of Taiwanese Voice & 30th Anniversary of ITH

The 30th anniversary of the ITH coincides in 2023 with the centennial of the launching of ‘Taiwan Minpao.’ Both institutions are important milestones for the people of Taiwan coming into the process of exercising their self-awareness, voicing their opinions accordingly and forging a consensus around the issue. With ‘100 Years of Taiwanese Voice’ and ‘30th Anniversary of ITH’ as focal points, the exhibition makes use of specially selected diaries, newspapers, old books, manuscripts and photographs retracing the 1920s and how contemporary Taiwanese popularized ideas by means of the press, thereby sowing the seeds of conviction for change. The founding and subsequent development of the ITH help to explore Taiwan’s journey from the yoke of martial law to the state of diversity as well as the evolution of Taiwanese history from a marginal academic discipline to a new frontier in mainstream academic research.

Special Lecture: Taiyi Trading Company and Chinese Merchants in Nagasaki

In 1901, Taiyi Trading Company was founded in Nagasaki by Chen Guoliang (1804-1908) and Chen Shiwang (1869-1940), who were originally from Kinmen. They operated their wholesale business across Japan, China, Taiwan, and Southeast Asia. The large number of documents, which were created by the company and dated back from 1862 to 1940, provide important historical sources for researching on clan history and the ventures of overseas Chinese.

In order to introduce and promote these valuable materials, the Institute of Taiwan History invites Mr. Chen Tong-hua, the fourth-generation descendant of Taiyi Company to present a lecture on March 6, 2012. Mr. Chen will share the historical context of the company as well as his own involvement in the activities among overseas Chinese. You are welcome to attend this special event!
