Chinese Tourists in Taiwan: Tourism and State Territoriality

Join us March 11 at noon in Guggenheim 201E as Ian Rowen, a Ph.D. candidate from the Department of Geography, discusses Chinese tourism in Taiwan. Using an argument based on theories of governmentality and performativity, Rowan treats borders and territories as dynamic processes rather than places. Rowan concludes that tourism is producing multiple sensations of stateness in Taiwan and exacerbating contradictions between China and Taiwan’s programs of state territorialization.
