Description: Colonialism, war, and national division have resulted in substantial communities of ethnic Koreans in Central Asia, China, Japan, and the United States, as well as Canada, South America, and Europe. By examining the histories of ethnic Koreans in these places, we will explore issues of migration, diaspora, race, policies regarding minorities, and colonialism. We will also take a fresh look at 20th century Korean history, demonstrating how diaspora and emigration are critical to understanding national history.
