In conclusion, we have seen how defining the national language has changed since late 1980s, and the cyborgian and hybridised language use have become more clearer than ever and enable the construction of individual, rather than collective, subjectivity. Secondly, the popular memories expressed in film forms are transformed onto cultural memories that organise and re-invigorate the discourse of Taiwanese subjectivity. Thirdly, due to historical bearing, the self-conflicting territorial sovereignty discourse of Republic of China in Taiwan make itself more and more difficult to define Taiwan's national identity. We also find Taiwan's cultural policy is interwoven with economic and political policies, and a slower pace might evolve when Taiwan confront the issues of national and cultural identity today.
