Soh Jaipil Lecture Series: Seeds of Control with David Fedman

On October 27, 2021, GWIKS hosted a Soh Jaipil Lecture on Seeds of Control: Toward a Timberline View of Japanese Colonial Rule in Korea

Event Description:
This talk will introduce the core arguments and interventions that animate Seeds of Control, one of the first English-language studies of the environmental impacts and legacies of Japan's colonial occupation of Korea. By outlining some of the central themes of the book, the author hopes to stimulate a broader conversation about green governmentality and colonial power, as well as the growth of Korean environmental history as a field.
