Varieties of Imperialism: China, Japan, and United States’s Diplomatic Affairs in Nineteenth Century Korea

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

In this article, bilateral treaties are treated as sociological objects that negotiate and transfer cultural meaning. Specifically in the 19th century, East Asian countries encountered Western nations such as Great Britain, United States, and France whose purpose was to engage in trading and diplomatic relations. Through a close textual analysis of the three versions of the Treaty of Jenchuan, also known as the Treaty of Amity and Commerce between the United States and Korea in 1882, the culture in interaction is evident. The outcome of the Treaty of Jenchuan is not the result of military defeat, i.e. “gunboat diplomacy.” Therefore, the U.S.-Korean Treaty exemplifies the nuanced and cultural communication channels in which Western notions of international law were able to diffuse to East Asian countries. To situate the U.S.’s involvement in Korea, one must understand China and Japan’s role in Korea. The varieties of imperialism from this case highlight how a theory on imperialism based on racial, regional or civilizational differences cannot suffice.
