Yumi Moon
Assistant Professor of History

Yumi Moon received a BA and an MA in Political Science at Seoul National University. She completed her Ph.D. in History and East Asian Languages at Harvard University in 2005.  Her dissertation reassesses the Korean reformist movements between the fall of the Kabo cabinet in 1896 and the annexation of Korea in 1910. She focuses on a group of pro-Japanese collaborators, the Ilchinhoe, and redefines its identity as an organization of populist reformers.  Her longer term projects include the transformation of Korea's tradition during the colonial period, democratization of South Korea, the cold war and the political cultures of the peripheries, and the history of movie theaters in modern East Asia.
