1412015 台灣物質史 A History of Materials in Taiwan 2.0 2
中文概述
Chinese Description
經常在餐桌上作為調味的胡椒、灑在咖啡上的肉桂,你知道它們在台灣的歷史嗎?19世紀英國商人為了走私台灣的樟腦不惜炮打台南安平港,轟毀熱蘭遮城遺跡,難道只因為衣櫥急需樟腦丸?想知道台灣茶葉的歷史、番蕃薯的歷史嗎?這些一般史書中不會記載,或者簡單提到的東西,如果作為主角,可以看到怎樣的歷史面貌呢?本課程我們將這些統統看作物質史,以不同東西與台灣的關連,串連為台灣物質史。當然,除了課堂所提到的主題之外,你還可以想到更多隨著時代演進,新的「物質」在台灣發展的歷史。
英文概述
English Description
Have you ever wondered when and how the spicy black pepper served on dining table and the aromatic cinnamon added to coffee were imported into Taiwan? And have you ever suspected the real motive of the British merchants who attacked the historic sites like Zeelandia and Anping Fort in Tainan in the 19th century only for the desperate needs of camphor? What about tea and sweet potatoes? These trivial and ordinary materials in daily life have never played the main roles in the documents of history; they, however, would take us into a totally different page if endowed with a broad scale of importance? This course is therefore aimed at the intertwining connection of such kinds of materials with the development of history in Taiwan.
