It's been a long time coming, but finally here – the Korea Journal announces its blog to the Korean Studies community and those interested in a more academic take on Korean society, culture, literature, and history.
Although I am the administrator of this blog, I do have a real job, and right now, I'm writing to you in my capacity as a consulting editor for the UNESCO-published Korea Journal, the oldest English-language academic journal there is, having been in print since 1962. The Journal publishes quarterly issues organized around a specific theme.
We have covered everything from Korean Buddhism to Korean cyberspace in our issues, and deal with current events, traditional fare, as well as assorted esoterica. If you don't know about us, you should check out some of the issues.
We are a new blog, and really look forward to developing an active community of people with Korean concerns. Since we have the academic background, resources, and institutional history, we thought it the perfect time to finally join the blogging community and offer ourselves as a resource for your debates, discussions, and deliberation about things Korean.
So come on over to the blog, register to leave comments, and join our growing community of Korean Studies scholars!
