On the 70th anniversary of what is officially known as the start of the Korean War, preeminent Korea historian Bruce Cumings will discuss the neglected history of the unresolved war and how it continues to haunt the present.
Bruce Cumings teaches modern Korean history, international history and East Asian political economy at the University of Chicago, where he has taught since 1987 and where he is the Gustavus F. and Ann M. Swift Distinguished Service Professor and the chairman of the History Department. He is the author of The Origins of the Korean War, Korea’s Place in the Sun: A Modern History, North Korea: Another Country, co-author of Inventing the Axis of Evil, and the editor of the modern volume of the Cambridge History of Korea (forthcoming). He is a frequent contributor to The London Review of Books, The Nation, Current History, the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, and Le Monde Diplomatique.
