[D Area] Culture and Life in Taiwan's Traditional Society

Course Objective

This course aims to introduce the culture and life of traditional Taiwanese society. Taiwan is an open island, with the characteristics of long-term immigrants in the early development process, and therefore has accumulated rich and diverse cultural traditions and customs. These customs and beliefs do not obviously exist in the official educational materials, but they continue to have a significant impact on people's daily lives.
This course will briefly introduce the development process and immigration structure of Taiwanese society, as well as the various beliefs and folk customs that accompany it. I hope it will help students better understand the culture of Taiwanese society and cultivate the tolerance that a pluralistic society should have.
