Prejudice & Politics is a series of stories that personify countries to explain, explore, and laugh at politics and history. Primarily focused on East Asia, these stories will break down the complexity of international relations and poke fun–often satirically–at the absurdity of how countries view themselves and treat each other.
My name is Allison and my weakness is trashy international relations drama. I first got into politics back in 2011(ish) when North Korea was making a lot of noise in the news, threatening thermonuclear holocaust and all. I started studying the country as a casual hobby and before long global affairs had captivated me. Several years and Bachelor’s degree down the road and here I am, writing this blog. Yikes.
