Acerca del Curso

This course examines the transformation of Korean society beginning around the turn of the 20th century to contemporary times. In particular, it explores how shifting categories of masculinity, and by contrast, femininity have impacted upon, and in turn been influenced by social, cultural, and political change. Using multiple disciplinary lenses, we will critically examine how gender intersects with political, social, and economic developments starting with the Confucianization of Korean society during the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910) up to the contemporary moment of globalization and neoliberal reform. The class will draw on a variety of topics such as traditional views of women, religion, race, class, education, patriarchy, sexuality, imperialism, modernity, war, globalization, the diaspora, among others. Special attention will be placed on the historical, transnational and transdisciplinary connections....

Excellent course. I strongly recommend it for anyone interested in Korean culture. I took it because I am writing about KPOP and sexuality but I learnt much more and am really glad I did it.

It was an interesting course. I've learned lots of new contents and information related to Korean society, and delved into some other topics, which were more familiar.

Texts, articles, and videos suggested are engaging, and fundamental in order to better understand the subjects.

I really like this course. It does show a point of view I wasn't expecting to learn about Korea and it really opened my mind and eyes a bit. It is a really well-taught class and I am enjoying it!

This course was very interactive, and it provided lots of resources on the side as well. It was challenging and allowed interaction with other learners as well. Thank you for this course.

I thought this was interesting, covering a wide range of topics that I knew little about! There were many reading references, and some interesting historical perspectives.

Curso muy interesante pero obsoleto en cuanto a información se refiere. Los datos son de hace 4 años y un país.puede cambiar mucho en ese periodo de tiempo.

For a five-week course, the coverage was good. Learning about the history behind the status of women in South Korea was enlightening.

It needs an urgent actualisation of the contents. But overall, good course!

The course cud have been split into two separate courses given by the two lecturers separately as there were a lot of topics but most were not covered in very great detail without a large amount of additional reading. Many of the links are no longer available or out of date and as a majority of the course is based on peer graded reviews it means that you are completely dependent on the good will of your fellow students and their willingness to leave a review for you. Having said that much of the information was interesting and thought provoking and with additional research can provide insight into these topics in contemporary South Korea.

Good overview of how things stand in South Korea. Slightly hard to understand as it is taught by Koreans with Korean accents.

Interesting, diverse topics to help people with no background knowledge of South Korean society/culture.

Links for several suggested readings/viewings need updating.

I do not like that almost 50% of the graded component is based on peer-review.

Too many of biased information about the nation. Please update you.
