Abstract: 本文凭籍台湾饮食文化来探索台湾的文化主体。台湾因为经历了不同殖民统治的缘故,因此造就了一个多元社会。步入21世纪,全球化的时代,台湾文化面临同质化的可能性扩大。国际上,台湾主权未定,台湾文化又无法与中华文化划清界限,更导致台湾人陷入身份模糊的困境。台湾内部对于台湾是否已形成一个强而有力的文化主体,对内能够凝聚民众的认同,对外能够作为软实力,在国际舞台上用来宣示自己的存在地位,其实是充满争议和不确定的。本文将从台湾饮食文化看台湾文化主体性的形成。台湾小吃作为“本土化”的其中一个现象,如何呈现出已形成的台湾文化主体。台湾小吃和夜市空间的结合又如何将台湾凝聚为一个集体的“文化生活圈”,提供台湾人一个通过饮食成为共同体,塑造集体记忆的空间。This dissertation examines Taiwan’s cultural subjectivity from the perspective of Taiwan’s food culture. Taiwan’s history of colonization resulted in a plural society and the Taiwanese ambiguity over their cultural roots. With increasing globalization, culture “homogenization” has become more real in the 21st century. China’s claim of sovereignty over Taiwan and the closely intertwined cultural binds between the mainland and the island further deepened the Taiwanese’s dilemma regarding their national and cultural identity. This eventually led to a question that became controversial within Taiwan: Does Taiwan possess a dominant cultural subjectivity to strengthen Taiwanese’s national identity and also serve as a means of soft power to proclaim its existence? This analysis views Taiwan’s cultural subjectivity through Taiwan’s food culture. The theme focuses on how the local “xiao chi” (local light dishes) reflects Taiwan’s cultural subjectivity. This analysis will also show that Taiwan “xiao chi”, in conjunction with Taiwan “night market”, have created a common “cultural living environment”, a space which not only serves a communal function but is also a basis for collective memory.
