This is the first research seminar of the ERC funded project “Aftermath of the East Asian War of 1592-1598”. Dr. Sangwoo Han (postdoctoral researcher at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona) will present his recent working paper. The seminars are open to the public.


The “Aftermath of the East Asian War of 1592-1598” project is a five year, European Research Council Starting Grant project (2018-2023) run by ICREA professor Rebekah Clements at the Autonomous University of Barcelona. The project seeks to understand the legacy of the East Asian War of 1592-1598, also known as the Imjin War and Toyotomi Hideyoshi’s invasions of Korea. Aftermath will be the first large scale investigation to combine Japanese, Korean, and Chinese sources in order to understand, not the war itself, but something which is arguably even more important: the aftermath and its implications for early modern East Asia. Especially, our research is focusing on three themes; Social change / Environment and economy / Diffusion of Technology

The seminar schedule for 2019-2020 is attached. For more information, please go to our website https://aftermath.uab.cat/news/.
