Abstract: 臺灣人認同議題近幾十年來備受矚目,而臺灣獨特的歷史與地緣政治背景對世界各地的學者構成了迷人的研究對象。臺灣日治時期是臺灣人認同形成過程的焦點時刻;令人意外的是,在臺灣可以觀察到日治懷舊的趨勢。與其他曾被殖民過的民族相反,臺灣人似乎對過去的殖民者抱有空前的好感。本文針對臺灣輿論上的懷舊趨勢進行一番分析解讀,聚焦調查臺灣電影作品對日本殖民主義描繪的演變,以及這種演變又如何反映有關殖民記憶的全國辯論進程。除臺灣電影作品外,本文考察所謂的(後)殖民懷舊的政治工具化。本文目的在於揭示臺灣社會對日治時期的多愁善感和理想化的真正根源,以及探究(後)殖民懷舊對於臺灣人認同形成的實質影響。
The issue of Taiwanese identity has become popular in recent decades. The island's unique historical and geopolitical background proves to be a fascinating object of study for scientists worldwide. The colonial period of Taiwanese history, when the Japanese controlled the island, had been a focal point of the formation of Taiwanese identity. Surprisingly, there is a discernable trend of colonial nostalgia toward Japan in Taiwan. Contrary to other formerly colonized nations, the Taiwanese seem to bear unprecedentedly positive feelings for their colonizer. This paper serves as an analysis and interpretation of the nostalgic trends and patterns within Taiwanese public discourse. The author concentrates on investigating the evolution of the depiction of Japanese colonialism in the cinema and how those transformations reflected the changes in the ongoing national debate regarding colonial memory. Apart from the analysis of Taiwanese cinematography, this paper scrutinizes the political instrumentalization of the alleged (post)colonial nostalgia for political uses. The main research goals of the paper revolve around unveiling the actual roots and genesis of the sentimentalization and idealization of the colonial times in Taiwan and examining tangible effects of (post)colonial nostalgia on the formation of distinctive Taiwanese identity.
