Taiwan’s cultural studies became actively institutionalized in 1993, when the Asia
Pacific Cultural Studies Center at the National ChingHua University was established.
This research institute has been engaged in such activities as the promotion of Asia-
Pacific academic exchanges, expansion of the international cultural studies network, etc.
Good examples are conferences organized by KuanHsing Chen’s leadership titled with
“Trajectories: Towards New Internationalist Cultural Studies” in 1992 and 1995 and
“Problematizing Asia: An International Forum” in 1996, etc. Taiwanese Cultural studies
in Taiwan can be largely divided into a part that introduces the cultural studies of
Europe and America and a part that theoretically investigates important issues in the
Taiwanese context. The former is mainly comprised of writings that introduce either the
genealogy of Western cultural studies or postmodernism, gender and feminism, and
postcolonialism. The latter is the tendency to analyze Taiwan’s cultural phenomena and
social structure from the viewpoints of cultural studies. As can be seen in a special issue
on cultural studies of the journal (Volume 16) of Taiwan Journal of Social Studies (Vol.
16), researches studying the popular culture in Taiwanese and global contexts began
from the end of the 1990s (Ping-hui Liao, 2000).
Viewed overall, South Korea’s and Taiwan’s critical MCS began at the end of the
1980s as a strategy for alleviating the thirsts of the intellectual communities in these
countries regarding critical theories, taking the democratization of the society as an
opportunity. As a result, poststructuralism, postmodernism, Frankfurt critical theories,
etc., got translated and introduced all at once, without intellectual deliberations in the
