Katharine Moon is the author of newly published Protesting America: Democracy and the U.S.-Korea Relations. Her lecture addresses South Korea’s “new nationalism,” conflict and cooperation among political activists, and their views of the U.S. military bases in South Korea. She explores how democracy and social movements have affected the military alliance between the U.S. and Korea and makes comparative reference to transnational activism against U.S. bases in other parts of the world.

Katharine Moon is also Professor in the Department of Political Science at Wellesley College. Moon received her B.A., magna cum laude, from Smith College and her Ph.D. from Princeton University, Department of Politics. She was born in San Francisco. Her administrative roles include Chairwoman of the Department of Political Science, Director of the East Asian Studies Program, Director of the Social Sciences, and executive committee membership in the American Political Science Association and the International Studies Association.
