The proliferation of generational labels across the sinophone world in the past decades – from the “post-1950s” to the “Strawberry Clan” on through the “lost” or the “weary generation” – raises numerous questions : who assigns these labels in which context? How are they appropriated by individuals to form collective identifications? What kind of – sometimes unexpected – collective actions do these generational identifications lead to? Going beyond restrictive cohort-based approaches of generation, this special issue offers grounded insights on the way people “talk and do generations” in China and in Taiwan, across their life course.
