Abstract

This research assesses the extent to which written and illustrated imagery, created for a general audience, informed perceptions of colonial Korea, in England, between 1910 and 1939. Through the utilisation of primary sources and material evidence, I show how these perceptions were mainly constructed through a Japanese lens, even when consideration was being offered by Western people. Pre-existing views of Japan and of the Orient, held by the English public at the time, also informed these views. Evidenced here is the manner in which Japan played a role in the creation of a Korean image in England. My findings show that some aspects of modernisation, which Korea received via Japan, were perceived as beneficial, particularly in the facilitation of travel for foreigners to colonial Korea.
