This is the sixth session of the webinar series 2021-2022 of the ERC project team, “Aftermath of the East Asian War of 1592-1598”. In this session Prof. Rebekah Clements (ICREA/Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona) and Dr. Seung Yeon Sang (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Visiting Scholar), will introduce their forthcoming online exhibition “Stories of Clay: The Lives and Works of Chosŏn Korean Potters in Tokugawa Japan”.
The “Aftermath of the East Asian War of 1592-1598” project is a five year, European Research Council Starting Grant project (2018-2023) run by ICREA professor Rebekah Clements at the Department of Translation, Interpreting, and East Asian Studies at the Autonomous University of Barcelona. The project seeks to understand the legacy of the East Asian War of 1592-1598, also known as the Imjin War and Toyotomi Hideyoshi’s invasions of Korea. Aftermath will be the first large scale investigation to combine Japanese, Korean, and Chinese sources in order to understand, not the war itself, but something which is arguably even more important: the aftermath and its implications for early modern East Asia. Our research focuses on three themes; Social change / Environment and economy / Diffusion of Technology.
