Recounts of the Korean War with Dr. Yoonha Shin
Thursday, May 5 at 12:30 p.m. on Zoom
A Commemoration of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month
Wedged between World War II and the Vietnam War, the Korean War is often dubbed as Americaâ€™s â€śForgotten War.â€ť The War was, nevertheless, a foundational event in the history of contemporary Korea, Korean Americans, and US-Korea relations. Granddaughter of a â€śsil-hyang-minâ€ť (internally displaced people during the Korean War), Dr. Yoonha Shin from the English and Philosophy Department at CCM revives her talk from last year to reach out to a larger audience. In this talk, she will discuss the significance of the Korean War and the process of rebuilding the Korean community through the perspectives of ordinary people and their experiences.
