Abstract

What triggered the change in Taiwanese identity in the 1990s? How has a sense of Taiwanese-ness been constructed since then? How does the state formulate Taiwanese culture and create meaning within that culture? This article looks at how Taiwan's ruling parties have constructed Taiwanese culture and identity since the lifting of martial law. It compares the continuity and differences in cultural policies between two political regimes–the KMT's apparent emphasis on indigenisation and the DPP's push for de-sinification–focusing mainly on the policy of Taiwanisation.
