John Lee - "Sylvan Anxieties and the Making of Landscapes in Early Modern Korea" & "A State of Ranches and Forests"

In this episode, Dr. Philip Gooding (IOWC, McGill) is joined by Dr. John Lee (Durham) to discuss two recent article-length publications, his 2022 paper, “Sylvan Anxieties and the Making of Landscapes in Early Modern Korea,” and his chapter, “A State of Ranches and Forests: The Environmental Legacy of the Mongol Empire in Korea,” from the 2023 volume, Forces of Nature: New Perspectives on Korean Environments. As these titles suggest, their discussion considers forests and forest management in Korean history, as well as the field of environmental history as a whole.

Dr. Lee is an Assistant Professor of East Asian History in the Department of History at the University of Durham, serving since 2019. He completed his PhD in 2017 at Harvard University and is currently finishing his first monograph.
