This paper focuses on the monthly magazine Taiwan Seinen, the first magazine published by Taiwanese intellectuals in Japan which ran from July 1920 to February 1922. Published in Tokyo, the magazine featured articles on modern thought and was edited and published by Taiwanese students studying in Tokyo during that time, most of whom were members of the Taiwan Culture Association. Major supporters of the magazine were the upper echelons of society in Taiwan. In addition to Taiwanese students, other contributing writers of the magazine included professors in Japanese universities and political figures. Taiwan Seinen has been regarded as a major source of information in the field of Taiwan studies, offering insights in particular to the process by which Taiwanese intellectuals were exposed to and received modern thought. Yet there remain areas to be explored in the study of Taiwan Seinen, in particular the interaction between peoples from East Asia afforded by the magazine. Using Taiwan Seinen as a point of convergence, this paper aims to identify the groups of individuals associated with the magazine, the types of networks to which they belonged, and the manner by which they became associated with Taiwan Seinen. This paper determined that there were three overlapping networks of individuals associated with Taiwan Seinen, namely, a network centered around universities, a network among Christians, and a network centered around the Takasago Dormitory, the Tokyo dormitory where the Taiwanese students stayed. The above explanations show that multiple networks of individuals were associated with the establishment and operations of the magazine Taiwan Seinen.
