1411003 An Introduction to Taiwanese Culture 2.0 2
Description The island of Taiwan is located in the middle of the island arc of Southeastern and Northeastern Asia. Further, it is the intersection of the Asian continent and the Pacific Ocean. Since many different ethnic groups have migrated in together, a multi-dimensional view of value-colorful in itself has thus been formed. This course will make a first-step introduction and discussion on the impact over the Taiwan society processed by the cultural mix of the Austronesians, the Christianity under the occupation of the Netherlands and Spain, the Hans, the Japanese and the modern civilization.
