    The present study aims to analyze the literary landscape in the early post-war period 7 of Taiwan (1945-49) from a quantitative perspective of digital humanities in hope for a contribution at the methodological level to the study of Taiwan literature or Sinology in general.Previous studies on the reconstruction of literary history often relied on elective prominent figures or groups whose legacy was endorsed retrospectively by he scholarship of the same paradigm. However, the literary landscape,or in Pierre Bourdieu’s term “literary field,” should be understood as a structure created by multifaceted relationships among various agents, who aimed to attain the dominant position in the field by accumulating the largest amount of symbolic capital. Based on the manual collection of the catalogue information of the periodicals during this period, we reconstruct the literary field by identifying the clusters of the contributors according to the periodicals in which they published. 47 post-war periodicals (including journals and supplements) were collected and 563 contributors were included in our analysis, all of whom had published in more than one periodical among the 47.Principal component analysis (PCA) was adopted to investigate the underlying construct that motivated the emergence of the groupings among the contributors. PCA not only showcased the prominent periodicals that had contributed greatly to the clustering of the contributors, but also yielded us the underlying clusters of the most prolific contributors, on which the interdependency between their position and disposition was drawn. On the one hand, it is argued that our inclusion of the agents and periodicals for discussion and analysis was made on an objective basis, thus more likely to uncover inter-agent relationship that may otherwise be ignored in a traditional approach On the other,it is suggested that our preliminary results would highlight the potentials of our current method in the future
