Korean Peninsula Affaris Center Presents: A Lunch with Professor Jooyoun Lee
Co-sponsored with the East Asia Program

Historical Memory and Comparative Territorial Disputes between
Korea-Japan and China-Japan

What are the historical origins of the territorial disputes in East Asia? In what way does historical memory shape the tensions? Are there any differences and similarities in the disputes between Korea-Japan and China-Japan? The talk provides an overview of the comparative perspective of the territorial disputes between Dokdo/Takeshima (Korea/Japan) and Senkaku/Diaoyu (Japan/China) islands regarding historical origins, collective memory, domestic politics, and regional security.

Dr. Lee is a Visiting Assistant Professor at Hobart and William Smith Colleges. She completed her Ph.D. in the Department of Political Science at Syracuse University. Previously, she served as a research fellow at the Korean Institute for Women and Politics and at the Institute of Civil Society and New Governance at Kyung Hee University in South Korea. She also coordinated the program of the International Conference of NGO’s which was held in Seoul in cooperation with the United Nations. Her research focuses on collective memory, identity, gender, and security in East Asia.

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
