*Chinese in Pre-Colonial and Colonial Korea, 1882-1945*

Colloquium: Center for Korean Studies: Institute of East Asian Studies |
November 14 | 4 p.m. | 180 Doe Library

Speaker: *Vladimir Tikhonov*
<http://www.hf.uio.no/ikos/english/people/aca/vladimit/>, Professor of East
Asian Studies, University of Oslo <http://www.hf.uio.no/ikos/english/>

Sponsor: Center for Korean Studies (CKS) <http://ieas.berkeley.edu/cks>

Contrary to the commonly accepted wisdom, Korean society never was
“ethnically homogeneous,” even before the onset of the epoch of
multiculturalism in the 1990s in South Korea. In pre-colonial and colonial
Korea, ethnic Chinese – mostly from Shandong – were the main non-Korean
ethnic group residing in Korea, alongside with (much more numerous)
Japanese. By 1910, they numbered ca. 2000; by 1931, however, the number
reached ca. 61000, most of them being manual workers and petty traders. The
presentation will focus on the roots of generally negative perception of
resident Chinese in Korean pre-colonial and colonial press and literature.
It will also emphasize the efforts towards Sino-Korean solidarity by both
some anti-Japanese nationalists and leftists in colonial-time Korea.

*A Changing North Korea*

Colloquium: Center for Korean Studies | *November 12 | 12 p.m.* | 180 Doe
Library <http://www.berkeley.edu/map/googlemap/?doe>

Speaker: *Andray Abrahamian* <http://www.chosonexchange.org/>, Executive
Director, Choson Exchange <http://www.chosonexchange.org/>

Sponsor: Center for Korean Studies (CKS) <http://ieas.berkeley.edu/cks/>

Each one of us has some conception of North Korea. It has forced its way
into our imaginations, yet so many developments in North Korea's economic
and social relations are either ignored or misinterpreted. While the
authorities search for non-threatening policy experiments, young North
Koreans seek opportunities in the business world. Choson Exchange focuses
on supporting pragmatic, talented North Koreans through training in
business, economic policy and law.

Andray Abrahamian became interested in Korea issues following a trip to the
DMZ in 2003. This inspired an MA in International Relations from the
University of Sussex. He then earned a PhD focusing on Western media and
images of North Korea, while teaching International Relations at the
University of Ulsan. He is the Executive Director of Choson Exchange and a
CSIS Kelly Fellow. Andray speaks Korean and has visited the DPRK 20 times.
