This panel will interrogate how the lens of gender can change our understanding of the Taiwanese colonial experience. The panelists will introduce their current research on how the Japanese colonial government in Taiwan attempted to shape and create gender norms and practices. They will discuss methodologies for uncovering how Taiwanese men and women mediated, responded and contested idealized norms and forged their own paths. What were the competing notions of Taiwanese femininity and masculinity circulating at this time? What larger conclusions can be drawn about the experience of the Taiwanese versus other colonial peoples throughout the Japanese empire and beyond?
