The Korean War,the first hot war of the Cold War,has not yet ended. Not simply a problem “over there,” the unending Korean War is an intimate and everyday condition of the American past and present.An asymmetrical war during which the United States perpetrated a “bombing holocaust” on North Korea, the Korean War has continuously informed U.S.regime-change policy toward North Korea for the past several decades. As a mode of imperial consciousness, the disavowal of the ongoing war normalizes the fact that the unending Korean War serves as the necessary condi­tion for a U.S.militarized presence in Northeast Asia and justifies renewed U.S.war as a “solution” to an unfinished war of intervention.

This roundtable brings together anti-war activists,cultural workers,and politically engaged schol­ars to address not only the looming spectacle of renewed U.S.war on North Korea but also the un­ending Korean War that hovers illegibly below the surface in the United States. The panelists on this roundtable will point to the urgency of a call to knowledge in critical opposition to current calls to arms or for a “militarized peace.”
