Abstract:

Using critical discourse analysis (CDA) method, the presenters examine how national identity was represented in high school history textbooks in Taiwan and Mainland China. The focus of the analysis is on the historical periods from mid 20th century to current. Reviewing and analysing texts and visual images, presenters highlight the differences of national identity presented in Taiwanese and Mainland Chinese textbooks. The comparative approach of textbook anlaysis addresses three of the ten NCSS social studies thematic strands: Time, Change, and Continuity, Global Connections, and Civic Ideals. Both sets of high school history textbooks portray the other part from different perspectives showing that power and ideology control the discourse of history texts. Yet, there are changes in history textbook accounts since power relations and ideology are constantly changing and textbook history are written to be in alignment with such changes to reveal new social and power relations.
