|Abstract: ||Taiwan has always been subject to globalizing influences. In the past twenty years, the rapid development of information technology and increasing cross-cultural interactions has catalyzed a new ”global village” consciousness. While some may see globalization as a recent
Phenomenon, in Taiwan, globalization started at least as early as the 17th century. This article traces the evolution of art education in Taiwan from a historical view, and argues that glocalization, instead of globalization,
May be a better word to describe what happened in Taiwan and in its art education
Field. The term “glocalization”originated in the 1980s and was popularized
By the sociologist Roland Robertson. Glocalization, a portmanteau of globalization and localization, is used in this article to emphasize the point that globalization and localization are actually complementary processes. The
Local is integrally tied to the global, and global to the local. Taiwan’s art
Education, for example, has adopted the experiences and theories of other countries and assumed unique qualities based on its own politics, economics,
Society and culture. From traditional apprenticeships to Western style
Public schools, Art education in Taiwan is influenced not only by what happens inside the field but also by general educational policies which reflect national identities, political and economic situation. The development of the profession of art education in Taiwan also engages processes of change, adaptation, and negotiation.
