Event Description

In The Korean War Remembered, Michael J. Devine provides a fresh, wide-ranging, and international perspective on the contested memory of the 1950–1953 conflict that left the Korean Peninsula divided along a heavily fortified demilitarized zone. His work examines “theaters of memory,” including literature, popular culture, public education efforts, monuments, and museums in the United States, China, and the two Koreas, to explain how contested memories have evolved over decades and how they continue to shape the domestic and foreign policies of the countries still involved with the Korea question.

Please join KEI for a discussion with The Korean War Remember author Michael J. Devine, a former Peace Corps volunteer to Korea, a two-time senior Fulbright lecturer at Korean universities, and former director of the Harry S. Truman Presidential Library.

Lunch will be provided. A book signing will follow the remarks from 1:00pm-1:30pm. Books will be available for purchase at a discount.
