Reflections on the U.S.-ROK Alliance in the Humanities: Commemorating the 70th Anniversary of the Korean Armistice, 1953-2023

The year 2023 marks both the 70th anniversary of the Korean Armistice Agreement and the 10th year of the Korean Library Association’s “Humanities on the Road” program, which brings scholars to local libraries to engage with community members through literature and the arts. To celebrate this historical moment, KLA is partnering with the Library of Congress to host this year’s program in Washington, D.C. for the first time. Please join us for a series of lectures exploring the human legacy of the “Forgotten War,” as well as the vibrant role of the Korean American diaspora in U.S.-ROK relations—in the past, in the present, and for years to come.
