DianMo, a German student magazine about Sinology, has just released a special edition about Taiwan. You can download a pdf of the magazine from their website.
Most of the articles are in German, which I know a few readers of this blog can read. There are two articles in English. One is “Reviving Ethnic Diversity: Preserving Taiwan’s Austronesian Aboriginal Languages” by Jeffrey Campbell. The other is an article I wrote titled, “A Comparison of Transitional Justice in Taiwan and East Germany”.
Transitional justice is an issue which is an ongoing theme on this blog. East Germany and Taiwan both emerged from authoritarianism at around the same time. The comparison between the two countries raises some important issues. Any comments on my article or the magazine generally are most welcome.
