探索臺灣:臺灣電影與臺灣社會

Course Description

The course is conducted in English

In this course we look closely at several Taiwanese films over the past two decades, and through them we intend to understand what prominent phenomena and changes have been taking place in Taiwan’s social culture. Some of the films speak to the current socio-political conditions on this island; some reflect an emerging cultural trend; some indicate social problems; yet some propose alternative approaches to history. In any case, those films present themselves as various attempts to make conversations with the world that we call Taiwan and live in. It is in this thread of thought that we learn to establish a connection between Taiwanese films and Taiwanese social trends/events through this course.

Through this course we expect to understand the social development vis-a-vis cinema in Taiwan. We look closely at the emergence of Taiwan New Cinema in the 1980s as well as the socio-political and -cultural contexts in which it emerged. This course moves on to discuss various subject matters and social trends in Taiwan from the 1990s on; we also look at the films produced in Taiwan in relation to those matters and trends.

 

·         Taiwan Through the Lens of Its Museums展示台灣從博物館看台灣


授課教授:蔡君彝

學分:3

課程介紹:




 This course is part of the popular “Exploring Taiwan” series offered at NTU since 2012. At once a 
history and a museology class, the course analyzes a variety of museums in Taiwan and their constructed narratives with critical readings in museum studies. The museums featured range from archaeology to contemporary art, from natural history to ethnography, and from concrete artifacts to intangible cultural heritage and digitized material. All focus on different aspects of Taiwan’s history and culture and are conveniently located in the greater Taipei area for visitations.

The course’s goal is threefold: (1) it introduces students to the unique arts, cultures, peoples, and histories of Taiwan as represented through its museums, (2) it brings attention to the historical context that engendered these institutions, (3) and it draws awareness to the theory and practice of collecting, display, and interpretation at work behind the museum’s narratives. 

Readings will be mostly in English and occasionally in Chinese. International students can 
partner with local students to complete readings. We will focus on one museum each week and read its official publications, independent historical and museological research on its subject, and studies on comparative museums abroad. Each class will consist of a 2-hour lecture by the instructor, followed by a 1-hour group discussion on key readings or video clips. There will be 2 fieldtrips to local museums and 2 guest lectures by museum professionals or museum studies scholars.

 從酷兒文學與電影凝視臺灣




  授課教授:鄭芳婷

學分:3

課程介紹:(本課程以英語授課。)

「酷兒」(Queer)意指挑戰或抵拒傳統「正典」(Norm)建構價值的論述與實踐。臺灣電影產業歷經臺語電影、武俠片、功夫片、政宣片、學生電影及新浪潮電影等時期。魏德聖《海角七號》以後,臺灣電影產業進入新一波復甦,更多類型的電影百花齊放。在臺灣文學長流中,酷兒文學深具挑戰傳統價值與霸權思想的能量,近代數位與科幻相關論述主題更是豐富了原有的酷兒文學框架。本課程聚焦臺灣當代具指標意義的酷兒文學與電影作品,試圖在二者之間建構多元對話,並搭配國內外重要酷兒理論,相輔相成。擇選作品不僅在文化美學上生產出獨特風格,亦與其創作時代的在地脈絡發出深遠的共鳴。



透過深度檢視臺灣經典酷兒文學、電影及國內外重要酷兒相關理論,引導修課同學自文學與電影作品所涉及的文化美學及社會關懷中思考臺灣的各種面向,加強同學對於臺灣相關議題的獨立思考與批判能力,並從中欣賞臺灣在地之美。



In the history of Taiwanese film, a variety of genres appear, including chivalric films, independent films, and New Wave cinema.  In the local film industry’s period of revival following the box-office success of Wei Te-Sheng’s Cape No. 7, a new genre, queer film, emerged, which questions and problematizes traditions and norms. Referring to discourses and practices that focus on challenging normative constructions, queer art, and particularly literature, is a force that consistently resists all kinds of hegemony within Taiwanese culture. Emerging digital and science-fiction discourses further enrich the possibilities for queer literature and film. This course focuses on significant queer literature and film from the past decade, fashioning dialogues between the two.
This course aims to prepare students for subsequent study in the field of Taiwanese queer films and related critical theories. The materials include selected queer films, texts, and theories that work on the social issues with Taiwanese contexts. By examining selected Taiwanese queer films and critical discourses with both Taiwanese and European-American contexts, the course helps students to rethink the cultural, artistic, and social issues embedded in the selected materials. Students are expected to improve their critical skills and aesthetical connoisseurship while learning the beauty of the island.
