The introduction first outlines the importance of historical memory and museums to Taiwan’s post-martial law political culture and its emergent democracy. It then establishes a narratological methodology centered on close reading of museum exhibitions and the political implications of those exhibitions. Finally, it offers an overview of the history of museum development in Taiwan, from the Japanese colonial era to the present.
