Monarchy and National Identity in Modern Korea, 1897-1945

This project focuses on one of the remarkable transformations in modern Korean history: the demise of its traditional political system in the twentieth century. It seeks to examine how this transformation took place, why it happened, the ways in which the monarchy resonated with various groups of Koreans and Japanese, and what the consequences were for the development of modern Korean nationalism and Japanese imperialism. In an effort to provide an historical context in which to understand the sweeping social and cultural changes experienced by Koreans as they lived through a peculiar form of 20th-century modernity, I propose a summer project that utilizes Korean- and Japanese-language resources of the Library of Congress.
