Rank #1: The Origins of Kimchi and Soju with Michael D. Shin

Podcast cover
Read more

April 4, 2019 - Kimchi and soju are staples of daily life in Korea and tend to represent the cuisine for foreigners. Though kimchi and soju are strongly associated with Korea, their history has remained elusive. Cambridge's Michael D. Shin delves into the origins of these foods by looking at the eating and drinking culture of the Joseon period. This gives us a fuller picture of the life of the peasantry during that time, helping us to understand what makes kimchi and soju so characteristically Korean. This talk introduces the book Everyday Life in Joseon-Era Korea, which presents aspects of the period from the perspective of the peasantry.

Rank #3: A Brief History of Han with Michael D. Shin

Podcast cover
Read more

May 2, 2019 - The term han is difficult if not impossible to translate into English – at least not in a word or two. Words such as “rage” or “deep sorrow” are not sufficient to capture the complex of emotions that it evokes. Yet it is something that Koreans can readily identify when they see it. This talk examines some historical examples of han taken from both literature and real-life events. They will include the Great Revival Movement of 1907; the death and funeral of Sunjong, the last Korean emperor, in 1926; and both early-20th century and postwar literature. Through this examination, Prof. Michael Shin hopes to provide a better understanding of han – and of why generation after generation of Koreans seem to be able to feel it so acutely.

October 30, 2019 - History plays a role in shaping current events all over our the world -- but it seems to be especially alive in Korea. Scholars and practitioners that work on the Korean Peninsula can all agree on the importance of learning lessons from the past, but that is where the consensus stops. Dr. Ramon Pacheco Pardo is an Associate Professor in International Relations at King's College London and author of the book US-North Korea Relations from Kim Jong Il to Kim Jong Un. In this discussion with Korea Society Policy Director Jonathan Corrado, Pardo attempts to “see through the cycle” and attribute rational explanations to Pyongyang’s mercurial behavior, asserting that North Korea’s has used brinkmanship and bargaining to achieve its main goal, which he considers to be diplomatic normalization with the US.

Is a regional economic or security architecture more or less possible, or desirable, post-pandemic?

Join us for a conversation with Representative Ami Bera (D-CA), Co-Chair of the Congressional Study Group on Korea, Deputy Chief of Mission for the South Korean Embassy in Washington Moon Seoung-hyun, and President of the U.S.-India Strategic Partnership Forum Mukesh Aghi, moderated by Korea Society Board Chair Ambassador Kathleen Stephens. With vibrant economic ties and a common commitment to democracy, how can Washington, Seoul, and New Delhi work together to respond to transnational threats and a rising China?

This program is produced in proud collaboration between the Korea Society and the Association of Former Members of Congress (FMC). FMC’s Congressional Study Group on Korea is a non-partisan, non-advocacy legislative exchange program that provides educational opportunities for Members of Congress and congressional staff on critical issues related to U.S.-ROK bilateral partnership.
