  • During the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries thousands of North American missionary women and Japanese settler women moved to Korea and sought to colonize, culturally and/or politically, Korean women. What were these missionary and Japanese settler women doing in Korea? How did they interact with Korean women? How did Korean women respond to the activities of foreign colonizing women, and did they interact with North American missionary women and Japanese settler women differently?

    Kyrie Vermette is a PhD student in the Department of Asian Studies at the University of British Columbia. Her research focuses on the colonial interactions between Korean women and foreign women living in Korea during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Prior to coming to UBC, Kyrie completed an MA in East Asian Studies at the University of Toronto, for which she wrote a thesis entitled “Like Mother, Unlike Daughter: Perspectives and Relationships Between Missionary Women in Korea and Korean Women, 1884-1910.”
