There's just one more meeting left and next week we will have a guest lecturer, Assistant Professor Christine Hong from UC Santa Cruz. She will be giving a presentation, titled, "Crossing the Line." You should have also received an e-mail from Leah that has the required reading materials for next week. Participation is considered mandatory next week. I believe there will also be a special visitor to our class. I hope to see everyone with the required readings next week.
I understand that for many of you this will be the most or last exposure you may have that relates to Korea for, perhaps, the rest of your lives. Answers to all response papers as well as a review of the class will be put up as a posting on this site around the beginning of next month. This will include a broad overview of everything we went over: which is basically all major aspects of Korean History from 2333 BCE to the currency reform in North Korea in 2010 CE.
DeCal Next Semester
We're in the process of assembling an entirely new team for the next few semesters (and possibly the next three years) to continue and extend this course and I believe we do have a core team in place, pending approval from our faculty sponsor and ASUC. However, if you're interested in participating, please send me an e-mail.
