Frederick Glover received a PhD in history from the University of Calgary in 2018. He also holds an MA in history from Carleton University and an MA in Asian Studies from Sejong University (located in Seoul). His PhD thesis examines the history of the Canadian missionaries and Korean Protestants in Hamgyŏng Province and Manchuria from 1893 until 1928. He is currently revising his thesis for future publication. Frederick’s next major research projects will examine the history of liberal thought in Korean Protestantism, the history of tourism in North Korea, and the recent commemoration activities of the Korean Canadian community in Toronto. Frederick has given several talks in South Korea, Canada, and the United States and published in journals such as Studies in World Christianity and History & Memory. His latest article, ‘“Very clever, yet too highly flavoured’: Why Robert Grierson’s History of the Canadian Mission in Korea and Manchuria was Unfit to Print,” was published in the Journal of the Canadian Historical Association/ Revue de la Société historique du Canada in the summer of 2022. He is currently an External Associate at the York Centre for Asian Research. Since graduating, Frederick has taught courses in world history, Asian history, Canadian history, and European history at Alexander College, St. Mary’s University, and the University of Calgary. He is greatly looking forward to teaching at Mount Royal University this year.
