New Korean History Class!

GW has a new Korean History Professor, Jisoo Kim, the Korea Foundation Assistant Professor of History and International Affairs. Her graduate level class is still open! Here's a brief description:

Colloquium on Modern Korean History is intended to introduce graduate students to the major secondary works on Korean history from the late nineteenth century to the present. What we may call Korea’s “long twentieth century” has been a time of extraordinary change and turmoil on the Korean peninsula, including colonization by Japan, civil war, division into two competing and mutually hostile states, and one of the most temporally compressed modernity the world has ever seen. Drawing on a wide range of approaches and materials, we will explore some of the important controversies through an examination of recent historical and historiographical literature. All required readings will be in English.
