Korea’s long 20th century experienced many tumultuous moments of dissent, rebellion, and revolution. When, why, and how do specific people dissent? This course devotes each weekly meeting to the study of a single moment of dissent, ranging from the peasant uprisings of the 1890s to labor activities in the colonial period and from anti-regime student movements in the 1970s to recent social movements and candlelight demonstrations.
