Less well known is that China also attempted to absorb Korea\u0027s maritime customs service. The recently-discovered correspondence of the first customs commissioner in Pusan, William Nelson Lovatt - who was fired by China - reveals this unknown aspect of Chinese imperialism in the late 19th century, involving conspiracies of silence, whistle-blowing, and blackmail.\u003cbr /\u003e\r\n\u003cbr /\u003e\r\nWayne Patterson \u002768 has served as a member of the History Department faculty of St. Norbert College since 1977, and specializes in the history of East Asia.

It explores how the campaign to Leave the European Union was secured through two interlocking visions. The first was an imperial longing to restore Britain’s place in the world as primus inter pares that occludes any coming to terms with the corrosive legacies of colonial conquest; the second, an insular narrative of island retreat from a ‘globalizing’ world that is no longer recognizably ‘British’. The talk will conclude by outlining some resources of hope that could potentially help to negotiate the current emergency.\u003cbr /\u003e\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"contact\"\u003eJen Moore, history@swarthmore.edu, 610-328-8135\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"location\"\u003eTrotter : Trotter 203\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"image\"\u003e\u003cimg src=\"http://calendar.swarthmore.edu/calendar/displaymedia.aspx?whatToDo=picture&id=4532\" border=\"0\" alt=\"A bloody Union Jack\" /\u003e\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"thumbnail\"\u003e\u003cimg src=\"http://calendar.swarthmore.edu/calendar/displaymedia.aspx?whatToDo=picture&thumbnail=thumbnail&thumbnailwidth=100&id=4532&square=N\" border=\"0\" alt=\"A bloody Union Jack\" /\u003e\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"category\"\u003eAcademic Departments & Programs, Lang Center, Lecture/Talk/ Reading/ Panel, Public Events\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"extrainfo\"\u003e\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"sponsor\"\u003e\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"opento\"\u003eThe Public\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"startdate\"\u003e04/06/2017\u003c/div\u003e\u003c/div\u003e")
