The February 28th Incident: Imperial Legacies and War Aftermath in Taiwan, 1947

April 20, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Speaker: Victor Louzon, Postdoctoral Scholar at the Weatherhead East Asian Institute, Columbia University

The February 28th Incident, as the 1947 Taiwanese rebellion against Guomindang rule and its bloody suppression are known, is perhaps the most notorious episode in modern Taiwanese history. This talk offers new insights on this event, exploring the dynamics of decolonization and demobilization in Taiwan, and of Republican China’s troubled war aftermath. It also discusses the debates and memory wars that surround the Incident in present-day Taiwan.
