By Pearl Wang

For the past two decades, participatory preservation has become popular among the citizens and activists, and has developed huge impacts on the evolution of New Social Movements in Taiwan. The 11th Village of Air Force Military in Hsinchu City, Taiwan has been a special case, because of its experimental trial-and-error bottom-up planning process of historic preservation back in 2000.

[Travel] From forgotten to forgetting – the heterotopic Lijiang

By Pearl Wang

Myhistoricity Lijiang 1

In his poems, Ezra Pound describes Lijiang as

"The green spur, the white meadow," "Wind over snow-slope," "The purifications," which "are snow, rain, artemisia," and "the pomegranate water, / in the clean air, / over Li Chiang" surround beautiful people living in peace (Hishikawa, 2005).

Joseph Rock, an Austrian-American, visited Burma in 1923. As a botanist, his mission was to find Chaulmoogra tree for its possibility to cure the disease of leprosy. During an accidental trip to Lijiang in Yunnan Province, China, he crazily fell in love with this historic town and Naxi people. During his time of living in Lijiang for 20 years, his enthusiasm and curiosity led him to an adventure of exploring local plants, and the language and culture of the ethnic group. He, consequently, produced several books, including The Ancient Nakhi Kingdom of Southwest China (1948), and A Nakhi-English Encyclopedic Dictionary (1963). To Rock, Lijiang is "a magic Kingdom of wealth, scenic beauty, marvelous forest, flowers and friendly tribes" (Rock, 1947).
