Brandon K. Gauthier received a John Higham Travel Grant from the Organization of American Historians and the Immigration and Ethnic History Society to present a paper at the OAH’s annual conference in April 2014. His paper, entitled “‘Bring All the Troops Home Now!’ The American-Korean Friendship and Information Center and North Korean Public Diplomacy, 1971-1976,” detailed the history of a North Korean funded “anti-imperialist peace organization” in New York City that sought to generate public support for the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and force the withdrawal of American forces from the Korean peninsula. He is currently at work on a dissertation examining the intellectual and cultural history of U.S. foreign relations with the DPRK from 1948-1996.
