ABSTRACT

This study investigates spatial patterns of residence and industrial activities of Korean and Japanese ethnic groups in the 1930s. The 1930s is characterized as rapid industrialization periods in Korean peninsula. Particularly, Seoul was the core of the industrialization process. This study analyzes and compares spatial patterns of industries based on Korean and Japanese residence at the time. Seeing the previous studies about spatial patterns about socio-economic activities in the Japanese colonial period are qualitatively driven, this study uniquely applies quantitative spatial analysis methods for the analysis. The results show that Seoul had distinctly clear segregation patterns among different ethnic residences. And this segregation attributed to industrial segregation by ethnic groups. However, spatial distribution of industries reflect not only residential segregation but also many other factors such as land cost and life styles.
