Zhang Xueliang and Terrains of Memory across the Taiwan Straits

Mark Harrison
This paper explores the terrains of memory that Zhang Xueliang inhabits on both sides of the Straits. It argues that his legacy suited the ideological interests of the PRC Party-state in obvious ways during the course of the KMT government under Ma Ying-jeou in Taiwan from 2008 to 2016. The paper further suggests that these divergent emphases in attempts at memorialisation point to a substantive schism in the significance accorded to Zhang. Those differences are so great that state-sponsored efforts to construct a common terrain of historical memory across the Taiwan Straits may have widened its fractures.
