An online seminar series about the Imjin War and its aftermath, featuring research talks by members of the Aftermath team and invited speakers.

Founded in 2019 as a traditional seminar series, the format of the Aftermath research seminar was switched to a Zoom webinar in 2020 in response to the logistical challenges posed by the global pandemic.

The webinar takes place once a month during term time. If you wish to join a particular session or be added to the mailing list, please contact the co-ordinator, Dr Barend Noordam (barend.noordam@uab.cat).

Below, you will find details of the program for current and previous years, as well as audio and video files of presentations that were recorded.
