[S2E8] 🌲 Landscapes of Empire with Prof David Fedman
This week we are joined by David Fedman, Associate Professor of History at the University of California, Irvine, to discuss Landscapes of Empire. David will share his research on the legacy of the Japanese Empire’s foresting initiative on the Korean peninsula, taking a look at collaboration and resistance between colonised Koreans and Japanese imperial authorities, how afforestation was rich with oppressive discourse designed to raise Japanese ecology and lower Koreans, and how the initiative continued to shape the landscape of Korea after the empire fell.
