Modern Korea: Politics, Culture, and Society

EAST 0530 S01 [CRN: 17082]

Korea has a long and rich history that often goes underappreciated in the U.S. and other parts of the world. At the same time, studying Korea provides a unique vantage point for understanding major processes in East Asia and the world, both in the past and the present. The aim of this introductory course is to use illuminating aspects of the Korean historical experience to set the path for an educational journey that encompasses not only learning about the Korean past, but also expanding our ability to approach cultural histories, as well as national cultures in general.
