Despite South Korea's economic achievement and democratic consolidation, Korean Studies as a chapter of Area Studies and Social Science have been under-studied compared to Japan and China studies. This can be attributed to the lack of the discipline's efforts to compile the diverse academic achievements in various areas of Korean Studies. Moreover, Korean Studies have also lacked interdisciplinary approaches to reflect upon South Korea's history, language, politics and art history.
This volume brings together top Korean specialists around the world in such diverse issues as methodologies on area studies, democracy, history, philosophy and art history. All the contributors in this volume probe various aspects of Korean Studies and provide a multi-dimensional and up-to-date portrait of Korea in the 21st century. Each chapter provides unique and original ideas on how to approach Korea from Area Studies perspective, how Korea's democracy has evolved, how intra- and inter-national identity are being shaped in and around the Korean peninsula and how Korean art have been used as a medium to reflect Korean mindsets.
