Post-colonialism has been translated as Hou Zhimin Zhuyi (后殖民主义) in Mainland China, Taiwan and Hong Kong, but they mean different things. “Traveling Theory” was put forward by Edward W.Said. In this article, Said criticized the general discussion of cultural misunderstanding, and stressed the historical situation of traveling theory. The difference of post-colonialism in Mainland China, Taiwan and Hong Kong is just the result of different location and historical situation. The purpose of Professor Zhao’s talk is to comment on the relationship between the different versions of post-colonialism and the special situation in Mainland China, Taiwan and Hong Kong.
