This article is an attempt to demonstrate how and through which social practices Taiwan’s past colonial experiences have been discursively produced in a certain way and what other alternatives have been excluded from this process. The article scrutinizes the controversy surrounding a Japanese manga On Taiwan, a book that provides a very positive evaluation of the legacy of Japanese colonialism in Taiwan. Through analyzing statements, utterances, and conducts concerning this manga that were produced by those who have various positions, this article aims to comprehend how the discourses of Japanese colonialism and Sino-chauvinism reciprocally conflict and compete with each other in ways that affect people’s self-identification, producing a particular form of subjectivity of Taiwan, while excluding, repressing, and silencing other alternatives.
