  4. ‘Shared Heritage’: Postcolonial Heritage and Civil Society in Taiwan

    Dates
    2, 3 & 4 November 2015

    Venue
    IIAS, Rapenburg 59, Leiden, the Netherlands

    The organizers
    The International Institute for Asian Studies, Leiden University and The Institute of Historical Resources Management, Taiwan. With the support of The Leiden Taiwanese Student Association.

    The lectures
    No longer representing the material imprints of foreignness and discrimination, Japanese colonial sites in Taiwan have become new sites of locality in shaping the country. At the same time, the memory of Japanese sites opens up many fields of contestation for civil society. The heritage-making process involves multiple levels of negotiation and reinterpretation by grassroots groups, and shows various initiatives in negotiating a better humanistic future for the relevant communities.

    Through representative cases of the conservation movement involving former Japanese sites, this programme shows the active civil society participating in the heritage making process in Taiwan and tells how Japanese sites have been opened up for discussions on issues of social justice, human rights and post-disaster sustainability. In this sense, ‘shared heritage’ is about sharing power and strategies. It crosses social classes and geographical boundaries.

    The programme will be accompanied by a photo exhibition at IIAS.

    Four representative cases will be discussed:

    Labour memory and industrial heritage: the labour union, NGO’s and the conservation of the site of the Taipei Beer Brewery;
    Urban planning and heritage movement: the case of Dadaocheng Special Historical District in Taipei City;
    Searching for a sustainable future for post-disaster communities: the Cooperative Building Projects in cooperation with a indigenous and local communities;
    Industrial landscape, community life and potential world heritage site: the Jinguashi mining district.

    All activities take place at the International Institute for Asian Studies, Rapenburg 59, Leiden.
