Her History in Taiwan
The Archives of the Institute of Taiwan History (ITH) at Academia Sinica holds a wide variety of historical sources pertaining to women of Taiwan; these materials date back to the Qing dynasty and can be examined from three aspects— “Traditional Women,” “Transition of Fate,” and “Self Expression.” They illustrate how Taiwanese women emerged from traditional family to modern job market and social activities with activism and independence.The collections of marriage documents, contracts, photographs, diaries, and personal documents presented here are selected from the digital archives of the ITH.

In order to further develop historical research in Taiwan and promote the use of archival materials to serve academics, the Archives of the Institute of Taiwanese History (the ITH Archives) collects important archives relating to Taiwan’s history not only in Taiwan but also abroad. Some archives are donations and some are purchases. The archives can be classified based on their source into three categories: Personal Papers and Collections, Family and Folk Papers and Institutional Archives. After our fellows reorganize archives, we welcome people to retrieve the materials. In addition, the ITH Archives also provides services such as reproduction, digital image authorization, reference consultation and guided tours for the public. Related information and service introductions are as follows. We fully welcome everyone to utilize the sources of the ITH Archives.
