Since Is Taiwan Chinese? came out in 2004, there have been many changes on both sides of the Taiwan Strait and in academia. Professor Brown will revisit the main points of her book, discuss the contexts of the book’s creation, and assess which conclusions still hold and which conclusions need what kind of revision.
