The Korean War is sometimes called the Forgotten War, but its legacy continues down to the present, influencing current events and political memories in both Asia and America. How do contemporary perceptions of recent conflicts in Korea reflect the contrasting ways in which the Chinese, Koreans and Americans remember the Korean War? This seminar will focus on the Korean War’s enduring influence in China and Korea, as well as its effects on American war veterans.
