Forum on Critical Issues in Korean Studies

February 21, 4:00pm - 6:00pm
Manoa Campus, Center for Korean Studies Add to Calendar

On the second day of the Center for Korean Studies Forum on Critical Issues in Korean Studies, Heonik Kwon, professorial senior research fellow at Trinity College, University of Cambridge, will address "North Korea's Legacy Politics." The distinct characters of the transpacific Cold War, in relation to its transatlantic counterpart, become evident if we consider the crisis of the Korean War in the early 1950s. Also important in this regard are the U.S.-Chinese rapprochement in the early 1970s and the collapse of the Soviet order in the early 1990s. These momentous historical events are, in turn, pivotal to an understanding of North Korea’s political genesis, especially its unique mode of power succession, which is referred to in North Korea as legacy politics. The second lecture explores the historicity of North Korea’s contemporary legacy politics. In doing so, it delves further into the political appropriation of kinship ideas in the unfolding of Cold War politics.
