LEE Jung is a post‐doctoral fellow at the Institute of History and Philology at the Academia Sinica, Taiwan. She is preparing a book based on her dissertation (Seoul National University, 2013). It discusses the politically charged process of globalizing modern botanies by analyzing cross‐cultural knowledge interactions in and around Korea under Japanese rule. She has focused on the history of colonial science and technology in order to understand global modernization, usually associated with characteristically modern and Western expertise. She hopes to better articulate the characteristics of modern expertise and its dynamic relationship with society by furthering her work into pre‐modern and post‐colonial East Asia.
