The project Korea and East Asia in Global History, 1840-2000 aims to assess the place, role, and impact of Korea and East Asia in the processes of global integration between 1840 and the present. It focuses on processes and problematics that need to be addressed within a regional and/or global framework. The four main areas of research within the larger project are: Empires and colonies; cultural translations; Capitalism, labor, and migration; and Regionalisms in East Asia. The project is funded by the Academy of Korean Studies.
