1. 101차 포럼

1) 발표자: Koen De Ceuster (네덜란드 레이든대 한국학센터 교수) *10년 재단 초청 체한연구펠로

- Koen De Ceuster lectures on modern and contemporary Korean history at Leiden University, the Netherlands. His 1994 dissertation charted the life of Yun Ch’iho (1865-1945) from (cultural) nationalist to collaborator. He has consecutively worked on the introduction and dissemination of modern nationalism, the YMCA’s social programs during the colonial period, Korean contemporary historiography. In addition, he has recently developed an interest in North Korean art theory and practice.

2) 주제: Carved in Stone. Public Memory and the Politics of Remembrance in Contemporary Korea

- (Abstract) One aspect of the struggle for democracy in Korea consisted of a rereading of the nation’s history, challenging in particular the historical legitimacy of the authoritarian state. This was most prominent in the debate on collaboration and its legacy. Once the authoritarian state was toppled, the debate over “settling the past” was no longer an academic exercise but became a social movement to right the wrongs of the past. This process culminated in the establishment of the “Truth and Reconciliation Commission, Republic of Korea” (TRCK) in 2005, a comprehensive attempt at dealing with past (state) injustices. As this process formally nears its end, I ask how this process of state atonement is affecting public memory. Has this been nothing but an exercise in alleviating individual sorrow, or is there a lasting impact on how the nation looks back on its history and reflects on its future
The Ministry of Patriots and Veterans Affairs (MPVA) is the state’s foremost manager of the memorial landscape. Among its many tasks is the proper commemoration of those who gave their life for the development of the nation. With the democratization of Korea, the commemoration of those who contributed to the democratization struggle has been added to the portfolio of the MPVA. This leads to the situation where the MPVA honours both the soldiers who died during the suppression of the 1980 Kwangju Uprising, and the civilians killed during that suppression. In this presentation, I show how complex and fractured the memorial landscape is and how the MPVA succeeds in holding it all together.

2) 주 제: Russia-Korea Relations Nuclear crisis on the Korean Peninsula

- (Abstract) We consider as important from the very beginning of the subject studying to define its goal and make a brief characterization of Russian key interests on the Korean Peninsula.
Moscow regards both Korean states as partners. Their relationships have independent value to Moscow and rest on principles of good neighborly interaction and cooperation. Russia maintains a firm and genuine stand in favor of nuclear-free status of the Korean Peninsula and proceeds from understanding that the North Korean possession of nuclear weapons stands in fundamental contradiction to its national security interests as well as goals of sustaining the global nonproliferation regime.
At the same time, Russia’s first priority is and will be the goal of maintaining peace, security, and stability on the Korean peninsula. Moscow believes that due to sharing a common border with North Korea, any Korean armed conflict will unavoidably inflict heavy damage to the military-and-political, economic, environmental, humanitarian, demographic, etc. security of Russia.
In this way, in a hypothetical situation whereupon Russian leadership was facing a dilemma whether to support military action against North Korea aimed at elimination of its nuclear weapons or act towards preserving peace on the Korean peninsula, Moscow will opt for the second path. In other words, Russia is firmly committed to the nuclear disarmament of North Korea but exclusively by peaceful diplomatic means.
