March 11, 2020

Yong-Chool Ha, Korea Foundation Professor of Korean Social Science at the Jackson School, is featured in UW News for recent work editing a new volume in University of Washington Press’ Center for Korea Studies Publications series.

“Recent discussions of Korea’s colonial period have focused mainly on exploitation or development that was domestic in nature, with international aspects relatively neglected, publishers notes state. But the colonization of Korea by Japan also changed Japan, and has had long-term geopolitical consequences.”

Clark Sorensen, Chair of the Korea studies program at the UW and the Center for Korea Studies, is mentioned for his role as editor of the national series.
