Guided tours of “Beautiful Island” Exhibit

February 23, 2018

A great island off the coast of China, Taiwan has had an eventful history: as a Dutch entrepôt, a Chinese frontier, a Japanese colony, and as a Cold War redoubt for the Chinese Nationalist Party.  Today, Taiwan is a prosperous democracy with a thriving civil society.  How did it come about?  This exhibit tells the epic story.

Professor James Lin offered two guided tours of the Beautiful Taiwan: Taiwan Journey’s to Democracy exhibit on February 23rd and 28th, 2018. Hosted by the University of Washington libraries, the guided tours were followed by brief Q&A sessions.
