He visited Seoul from November 2008 until March 2009 as an Endeavour Research Fellow. The title of his new book is Korea’s Developmental Alliance: State, Capital and the Politics of Rapid Development (London: Routledge, 2009).ABSTRACT   The “Rise of China” is perhaps the most discussed topic in the field of international relations today. While few doubt that China is indeed “rising”, precisely how this process is unfolding and with what implications is unclear. Should China’s growing prominence in regional and global affairs be treated as simply the latest in a natural process of states rising (and later declining) in influence, or is it somehow new and potentially destabilising? Given the diversity of opinion about the implications of China’s rise, its unevenly distributed effects require further attention. The implications of China’s rise have been acutely felt in South Korea, a country with a long history of interaction with China. This paper focuses on the ways in which Korea has responded to the rise of China, and seeks to situate Korea’s position on a spectrum of responses to a rising China.Note: The presentation schedule for Spring 2009 is as follows*:April 7, 89th Forum: "The Persistence and Transformation of Confucian Values in 21st Century Korea: An Empirical Assessment", Professor Hyojoung Kim, Director, Center for Korean American and Korean Studies, California State University, Los AngelesApril 28, 90th Forum: "TBA", Professor Nancy Abelmann, Korea Foundation Research Fellow, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign**May 21, 91st Forum: "The Second An Chungk^un of Korea and the Politics of Making a National Hero", Jane Kim, PhD Candidate, University of California, Los AngelesJune 2, 92nd Forum: "On Kang Kyong-ae and Her Act of Writing", Mi-Ryong Shim, PhD Candidate, Columbia University, New York*Dates are subject to change** The 91st forum has been changed from May 14 to May 21
