    This episode of the Korea Now podcast features an interview that Jed Lea-Henry conducted with Kathryn Weathersby. They speak about ‘borderlands’ as places of fear and confrontation, how this phenomenon impacted Russian involvement in the great power struggle over Korea prior to its seizure by Japan in 1905, the patterns that informed Moscow’s actions toward the peninsula, and which ultimately led the Soviet Union and the United States to divide Korea.
    Kathryn Weathersby is an Adjunct Professor of Asian Studies at the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service, Georgetown University Washington, DC; Adjunct faculty at Korea University in Seoul, Korea; and Co-founder of the Korean War archive at Korea University.
