(1) In the East Asian region, the monsoon season characterized by a long rainy spell (jangma 장마 in Korean; baiu 梅雨 in Japanese) from early summer, and followed by typhoon 颱風 (taepung in Korean; taifū in Japanese) has caused tremendous disasters. (2) In the same way as Japan and China, Korea has also suffered from recurring floods caused by a concentration of rainfall and flood inundation during the summer seasons. Remarkably, recent floods have tended to become more severe and long-term due to recent global climate changes. (3) Historically, flood disasters on the Korean Peninsula occurring principally around the lower reaches of the great rivers have frequented the richest rice cultivation areas (Honam Plain 湖南平野) of the southern part as well as the inland area of the middle part of the Korean Peninsula. (4) This study examines the first case of the lower Dongjin-river basin as an endemic flood area in the center of Honam Plain, and the second case of the Imjin & Hant'anriver basins in the middle of the Korean Peninsula. While the first case area has been affected by intensive agricultural and water-control projects since the early Japanese colonial rule in Korea, the second case area has remained a backwater region of dryfield agriculture, long isolated from local development projects. (5) This study aims to explain the vicious cycle of local development and natural disasters in the context of the growing population (urbanization) in the twentieth century through the cases culled from Korea.

This study examines how the Korean satellite development program was established in Korean society and expanded its boundaries through tracking the history of KAIST Satellite Technology Research Center (SaTReC) from 1989 to 2013. Based on documentary analysis, I argue that the Korean satellite development program was started by an autonomous research group, SaTReC, and evolved into a governmentled program. This process is divided into four periods based on the boundaries of the Korean satellite development program: 1989-1993, 1994-1999, 2000-2005, and 2006-2013. Although the role of SaTReC was reduced in the Korean satellite development program, the Korean satellite development program expanded its boundaries from SaTReC to the Government and Korea Aerospace Research Institute (KARI), to industry, and finally to other countries and the public. New actors of the Korean satellite development program raised according to the expansion of boundaries. This study shows that the Korean satellite program continuously has expanded its boundaries to find its position in society under environmental change and provides insights for the future of the Korean satellite development program in the new era.

4Moving Mountains: Industrial and Environmental Transformations in the Rise and Recession of “China's Detroit”

In this article, we examine the history of Shiyan, a city located in the midst of moun-tains that had once been a major center of China's automobile industry and, in that capacity, a contender for the title of “China's Detroit.” In particular, we focus on the interplay of environmental conditions and industrial aspirations that undergirded Shiyan's rise and recession. We begin with the question of how a city built primarily for the manufacturing of automobiles, which of all the technologies of the twentieth century best represented mobility and access, came to be situated in such an inac-cessible place. The short answer to that question is that this was a confluence of Cold War concerns and strategic considerations. But we show how the emergence of this city involved the mobilization of considerable labor and materials under conditions of resource scarcity, which then had bearing on the shape that this urban space would take. But while the building of the city, like the building of cities in general, reshaped the surrounding environment, it would be less in its rise than in its recession that we witness the greatest environmental devastation, as mountains began to be leveled in hopes to creating industrial opportunities amid ongoing economic decline.

5Transnational Hazard: A History of Asbestos in South Korea, 1938-1993

How do hazardous industries move around the world? Hazardous industries, those that deal with toxic materials or significantly pollute the surrounding environment, have a history of relocating to so-called pollution havens. This paper examines a history of asbestos in South Korea that begins in 1938 when the largest asbestos mine in East Asia started operation and ends in 1993 when an asbestos textile factory worker was recognized as the first occupational cancer case. It highlights how global political and economic regimes introduced, supported, and depended on the asbestos industry. Towards the end of Japanese Colonialism, asbestos mines were developed in the peninsula to support the increasing need in the archipelago. After the Second World War, U.S. foreign aids supported asbestos manufacturing, together with the areas deemed foundational to industrial rehabilitation and self-reliance. Pushing for the modernization of landscapes, and industrialization of the economy, the South Korean government in the 1960s and the 1970s actively promoted foreign investments in the asbestos industry. This paper pays attention to the movements of things, people, and knowledge between borders in following asbestos dust from the present to the past. This paper illuminates how political economic interests intervene in a slowly and steadily progressing disaster by engaging this history of asbestos with today's occupational and environmental health problems.

6Japan's Poison Gas Legacy: Industrial Disease, Environmental Remediation, and the Challenge of Abandoned Chemical Weapons (ACW) in East Asia

This essay examines two aspects of the legacy of Japan's manufacture and deployment of chemical weapons (CW) in World War II: the medical issues that arose among workers in Japan's chemical industry related to weapons manufacturing and the long-term environmental impact of abandoned chemical weapons (ACW) remaining in China and Japan. The essay argues that these subjects have received inadequate attention due largely to three factors: the secrecy imposed upon the matter beginning in the immediate postwar period; the bureaucratic inertia that characterized the Japanese government's attitude toward industrial workers during and after the war as well Chinese victims who suffered injuries as a result of ACW in China; and political constraints imposed by postwar agreements. Consequently, the victims - both Chinese and Japanese - have not been adequately compensated by either government. Nor has this subject received much attention in Korea, another site of Japan's industrial manufacturing during the war, largely because the munitions plants in question were predominantly located in what is today North Korea. The issue of ACW related illnesses and deaths remains politically charged and controversial, despite efforts of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) and the Chemical Weapons Convention of 1997 to address it.

7Engineers for Seoul: Sewage Treatment and the Professionalization of Sanitary Engineering in Korea

This paper focuses on how early Korean sanitary engineers used new sewage treatment plants as an opportunity to redefine sanitation as an engineering practice and to refashion themselves as prestigious engineers. Through academic programs, professional societies, and public service, academics and government officials established new identities of an independent profession as a service to the community. I first track down how sanitation and public health have evolved in 1960s urban Seoul. I argue that early sanitary engineers of Seoul City University differentiated themselves both from civil engineering profession and from municipal public works with new curriculum. I look at the professionalization of sanitary engineers and their branding as environmental engineers with their Korean Society for Environmental Engineers and Korean Environmental Engineering Federation. I conclude with ideas to understand the strategies employed by early sanitary engineers in Seoul such as appropriating knowledge and infrastructure and co-producing profession and identity.
