Korean Society for Cultural Anthropology 2006 Conference

Filed under: — K. M. Lawson @ 8:02 am Print

Thanks to Antti for making note of the fact that all the papers for the 2006 annual conference of the Korean Society for Cultural Anthropology are available online as PDFs.

While I’m mentioning Antti, whose weblog is a must read for anyone interested in Korea, readers here might be interested in a number of his recent postings including one on Korean name romanizations, the claim that Pak Hon-yong’s reputation has been reinstated in the DPRK , on “defensive nationalism” in Jo Jung-rae’s new novel, discussion of some photos of Seoul in the early 1970s and the Daeyeonggak hotel fire, and an interesting a discussion of the history of Noraebang in Korea.

  1. Now you are scraping the bottom of the barrel really! I’ve been quite pressed on other matters not to make notes often, and the topics have not been so much what I originally intended, closer to my scholarly interests. But thanks for the notice anyway.

    The thing about Pak Hon-yong would really be a sensation, but it cannot be true, unless DPRK has made a secret decision to strip Kim Il-song of his honors and change its political system. That’s why it seems that the writer is doing either naive or cynical propaganda, especially as he’s proposing that the place of his birth in the South be designed as a place of historical interest (역사유적지) now that the North is supposedly rehabilitating him.

    Hey Antti, I think you underestimate your contributions or are being too modest. I really appreciate your postings and think they are worth sharing with others!
