ACF 666: Day-long Conference on Korean War at The Korea Society on Sept. 10th
The Korea Society and the Center for Korean Research at Columbia University will host a day-long conference entitled “The Korean War Today” to mark the 60th anniversary of the start of the conflict. Leading scholars and policy observers will address the causes and consequences of the Korean War, and examine its lasting impact on Korea, the United States, Northeast Asia, and international relations; the roles of the United Nations; and prospects for an end to hostilities and a peace regime in Korea.
This event concludes The Korea Society’s summer 2010 War and Remembrance series, and is a last chance to see Steel Helmets: U.S. Korean War Graphics and Korean War in Color, exhibitions on view at The Korea Society Gallery.
The conference will take place on Friday, September 10th from 8:30 AM-3:30 PM at The Korea Society, which is located on the 8th Floor at 950 Third Avenue @ 57th Street, New York, NY 10022. The entrance is on 57th Street, near the south-west corner of the intersection.
