[King Kojong and King Sunjong]

Description

Collection: Willard Dickerman Straight and Early U.S.-Korea Diplomatic Relations, Cornell University Library Title: [King Kojong and King Sunjong] Date: ca. 1904 Place: Asia: South Korea: Seoul Type: Photographs Description: King 'Kojong' (left) and his son his heir (the future king)' Sunjong' are shown in full ceremonial dress of the Great Han. This western style attire was begun in 1895 by King Kojong's order. The headwear cannot be traced to any particular (imported) tradition. 'Kojong' ruled from 1864-1907. In late 1895, he and the crown prince, 'Sunjong', fled to the Russian legation after the assasination of Queen Min by the Japanese forces present in Korea. Upon his return in early 1897, 'Kojong' proclaimed the independent 'Great Han Empire' and thus he became Emperor of Korea. Kojong's opposition to the Protectorate treaty was well known as an imperial letter, which condemned the treaty and appealed for intervention from the Hague, was published in the popular Korea Daily News (Taehan Maeil Sinbo). The Japanese used this beligerent act as a pretext to tighten control and forced 'Kojong' to abdicate the throne to his son. In 1907, 'Sunjong' became emperor, but it became clear very quickly that he was actually just a puppet of the Japanese military command.

In fact, King 'Kojong' - then in custody of the Japanese military in the 'Toksugung' (Palace of Virtuous Long Life) in Seoul - sent secret envoys to the International Peace Conference in Hague in June 1907, 'exposing Japanese invasion of Korea to the whole world.' To the left is Queen 'Sunjonghyo' (1894-1966), who married king 'Sunjong' in 1907. This marriage did not produce any children. In the center is the Korean crown prince Yi Un (Yongchinwang).

In 1920 he was married to Princess Masako (Yi Pangja), a cousin of the present empress of Japan - In 1963 he returned to Korea and on May 1, 1970, quietly passed away at Naksonjae at the age of seventy-three.e Sources: Adams, Edward B.

21L.501 The American Novel (MIT) 21L.501 The American Novel (MIT)

Description

This course explores the metaphorical, historical, social, and psychological value of ghosts in the American novel. Using the theme of "haunting" as a flashpoint for class discussion and a thematic center for our readerly attention, this course examines the American novel in the context of the various histories which might be said to haunt fictional characters in the American novel, to haunt the American novel itself, and ultimately to haunt us: America's colonial past, its slave past, and other memorable and painful chapters in its past.
