Professeur Hyaeweol Choi (Australian National University, professeur invité de l’EHESS) présente une conférence.
Pahk Induk (1896-1980) is one of the most famous and controversial women intellectuals in modern Korea. She was a protégé of her missionary teachers, received higher education in the US, travelled the world twice as a representative of mission organizations, and was eventually labeled as a “collaborator” with the Japanese imperial power during the Asia Pacific War. Using Pahk’s life story as a case in point, I discuss the critical role of the Protestant mission in the gender history of Korea within the broader context of Korean nationalism, Japanese colonialism, and transnationalism in the early twentieth century.
