Thematic series

Anticommunism in Germany and Korea

Asian Journal of German and European Studies welcomes submissions to the new thematic series on 'Anticommunism in Germany and Korea'

Anticommunism has a long history in the West, starting in the 19th century. Both Germany and Korea have been divided nations for many decades.  They also played a central role in the Cold War. Through this series, we hope that comparative approaches will shed new light on these experiences.  The role of the USA as a hegemonic power should also be analyzed and addressed in this context. Articles from various disciplines such as politics, economics, culture and society are invited to give their perspectives on this issue.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Cold War
  • Division of Korea
  • Division of Germany
  • McCarthyism
  • Korean War
