The experience of the Korean peninsula under Japanese colonial rule from 1910 to 1945 constitutes an important part of global history, especially considering the extent to which colonial legacies continue to shape current relations in East Asia and beyond. Drawing heavily upon a wealth of various primary sources from both Korea and Japan—especially images and oral histories—this curriculum unit seeks to contribute to a more balanced understanding of the global history of colonialism by providing an in-depth examination of the history of the Korean peninsula under Japanese rule.
