Dear all,
on behalf of Prof. Chung Young-soon from the Academy of Korean Studies and Prof. Leonid Petrov from Sydney National University I would like to invite you to particiapte in the following event:
The Korean War and East Asia Seminar
About the seminar: This study is a part of the continuing collaborative project, “Northeast Asia and the Korean War: Legacies of Hot and Cold Wars in Contemporary Constructions of the Region”, sponsored by the Australian Research Council and led by Professor Tessa Morris-Suzuki (Australian National University). This project strives to provide the first comprehensive study of the socio-economic, cultural and ideological impact of the War on Korea's neighbours: China, Japan, the Russian Far East, Taiwan and Mongolia. By analysing the profound effects of the War on these areas, this project will deepen the understanding of the Cold War in the region, and provide a historical framework for moves to overcome continuing crises on the Korean Peninsula.
