As the Japanese indigenized these ideologies in the early 20th century, the prominence of athletes from Japan’s largest colony of Korea in domestic and international competition revealed contradiction in the rhetoric of empire that posed dilemmas for colonial athletes and Japanese spectators alike.  This talk explores these, and Japan’s eventual redefinition of the place of Western sport within the empire, through experiences of Korean long-distance runners who represented pre-war Japan on the world stage, most notably Son Kijung, winner of the men’s marathon at the 1936 Berlin Olympics.
 
Common Hour intends to offer the Trinity community an opportunity to absent themselves from daily tasks and concerns, gather, and engage in topics of interest and enjoy performances, lectures, discussions, and readings that enrich our cultural and intellectual lives. The designated weekly hours also seek to showcase the best of what occurs within our campus community.  A light lunch will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis during Thursday Common Hour. If you plan on bringing a class or group to a Thursday Common Hour program, please e-mail common-hour@trincoll.edu in order for adequate food to be requested.
