A public lecture about Korea & China Relations in the 1880s
by Dr. Wayne Patterson , Professor of History at St. Norbert college
WHEN: Monday, May 21
LOCATION: PSU campus, Smith Memorial Student Union, room 238
Dr. Patterson's talk will draw from research in his new book, In the Service of His Korean Majesty: William Nelson Lovatt, the Pusan Customs, and Sino-Korean Relations, 1876-1888. Using newly discovered data, Dr. Patterson will paint a picture of what life was like in Pusan, Korea in the 1880s, and will shed light on what China was trying to accomplist in Korea at that time.
