The Landscape of Historical Memory

Chapter 7 concerns the National Museum of Taiwan Literature (國立台灣文學館‎) and its efforts to assert literature as a cultural foundation for a national polis. It presents a close reading of the exhibit when the museum first opened in 2003 and the 2011 revised exhibition. Like the National Museum of Taiwan History, this museum emphasizes Taiwan’s linguistic and cultural diversity, as well as its strong sense of openness and cultural tolerance.
