The March First Movement: 100 Years On with Professor Michael Shin
February 28, 2019 - The year 2019 marks the 100th anniversary of the March First Movement, the largest uprising against Japanese rule during the colonial period (1910-1945). The movement’s now mythic status in Korean nationalism has obscured much of its complexity. This talk with Prof. Michael Shin aims to put the movement into a broader context by discussing some of its lesser-known or forgotten aspects. By doing so, it will be possible to have a better understanding of how the movement was a crucial movement in the development of Korean nationalism and how it is important to understanding Korea today.
