Centering Taiwan in Global Asia

The interactive website Centering Taiwan in Global Asia explores the themes of Indigeneity & Early Settlement, Navigation, Trade & Piracy, and Colonization to introduce the rich and contoured history of the island of Taiwan and its role as a nexus for global trade and conquest by outside powers. Developed by a team at the Asian Studies Center at the University of Pittsburgh including a NCTA Alumna of the University of Pittsburgh National Coordinating Site, this website fills a gap in curriculum about Taiwan by providing a content-rich and guided, interactive, spatial digital humanities resource for classroom use.
