Crossing the Border from Chōsen to Kankoku in Japan

Younghae Han- 2012-2013 Visiting Professor at the Shorenstein APARC

RSVP Required by 5PM on January 22

In this talk, Professor Han will examine the implications for the Zainichi (people of Korean ethnicity who have lived in Japan since the colonial period) of choosing between identifying themselves as either Chōsen or Kankoku for Japan's alien registration purposes. Chōsen is a historic name for Korea now also used by North Korea in its official name, while Kankoku, which also means Korea, refers to the Republic of Korea (South Korea).
