Korea, Mongols and Ming: Integrative Histories of Early Modern Eastern Eurasia
This symposium will focus on Korea and Eurasia from the thirteenth to sixteenth centuries and highlight thematic approaches that resonate with other places and periods. The symposium features scholars interested in integrating early modern Korea into regional and global narratives. Their projects weave together Mongolian, Ming, Koryŏ, and Chosŏn histories or provide interdisciplinary perspectives on comparative issues related to statecraft, diplomacy, and culture.
The morning session is a roundtable featuring the authors of three new books on Korea’s interactions with the Eurasian continent. The afternoon sessions feature presentations on current research by scholars based in the Los Angeles area.
This event is an effort to build a field and a community around histories of early modern Korea that are engaging and exciting to more than fellow specialists. It will be an opportunity to exchange ideas, explore new perspectives, and foster collaborative research efforts. We invite all interested scholars and researchers to participate in this event and contribute to the growth of the field of early modern Korean history.
