“Politics and Pageantry in Protectorate Korea (1905-10): The Imperial Progresses of Sunjong” (Article)
Title: “Politics and Pageantry in Protectorate Korea (1905-10): The Imperial Progresses of Sunjong”
Author: Christine Kim
Abstract: In the winter of 1909, at the height of Japan’s informal rule in Korea, the protectorate government sent the Korean emperor Sunjong on an extended tour of the provinces. A reinvention of the traditional royal progresses of the Choson dynasty, what started out as an exercise to promote the residency-general’s policies through the throne sparked a series of acts of resistance that culminated in a major confrontation in the northwest. This article explores the strange dynamics behind the progresses, the role of the media in Korea and Japan in galvanizing public opinion, and the contest of two official nationalisms defined by throne and national flag.
