Details Abstract:

Migration has existed throughout the history of human beings, affecting the identities of migrating peoples and the societies they migrate into. Before the world has been overwhelmed by modernization, national states and globalization, how did migratory people perceive themselves and how were they perceived by others? Were there clear boundaries between “Us” and “Them”, “Self” and “Others”? Was identity pure and stable or mixed and fragile?

In my presentation, I will discuss these questions by examining the case of Koreans who migrated to Liaodong in the 15th to 17th centuries. In case of the Korean migrants, identities turn out to be unstable, mixed and entangled.
