Anti-Japanese Sentiment Among Graduates Of South Korean Public Schools, Jamal Barbari
This capstone paper aims to explore how South Koreans, who have graduated public high school within the past seven years (from 2010 to 2017) view Japan and Japanese people, and what (if at all) information concerning Japan and Japanese people was established and received during their presence in the public school system. Through a brief analysis into the history and intricate relationship between Korea and Japan, introduction into hidden curriculum and its significance in this context, as well as ten personal interviews with South Korean graduates who fit the criteria for this research, this capstone paper offers a distinctive insight ...
Invisible Invisibility, 2017 CUNY Hunter College
Invisible Invisibility, Eugina Song
School of Arts & Sciences Theses
White America assumes its culture is the default, and Asian culture as foreign and irrelevant. I address Asian invisibility by using canvas structure as a Western framing device of painting, and make this cultural barrier visible by breaking out of the frame. Deriving from Dansaekhwa, I challenge the Western painting structure with materiality.

From Guest To Host: Cultural And Language Conflict In The Korean American Catholic Parish, Irene H. Park

Considering some of the socio-cultural and theological factors of this issue, which are explored in this paper, a pastoral plan utilizing social media is proposed.
Joy Of Ugly Feelings: Korean “Bad Taste” Webtoons As A Case Study, 2017 Bellevue College
Joy Of Ugly Feelings: Korean “Bad Taste” Webtoons As A Case Study, Hyesu Park
Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature
Cognitive narratology has contributed significantly to our understanding of reading fiction, namely, what happens when we read and why we read at all. According to scholars such as Lisa Zunshine, Alan Palmer, and George Butte, we have an evolved craving to read the minds of others, and reading fiction ultimately is a busy act of reading and misreading minds of characters in the storyworld. My paper questions this cognitivist belief by using Korean “bad taste” webtoons (online comics using violent verbal and visual for amusement) as a case study. I discuss ways in which the absence of readable minds and ...

The recent proliferation of the internet has posed many challenges, and opportunities, for music industries across the world.

After delving into the history of the industries, this paper discusses two integral systems within Korea and Japan’s industries, the idol system and the tie-up system, and how hybridization and globalization has impacted these industries.

History And Context: Late Meiji (1905-1912) Narratives Of The Imjin War (1592-8), Brian Heise
Arts & Sciences Electronic Theses and Dissertations
From a foreign policy perspective, Japan's Meiji period (1868-1912) invites comparison with the regime of Toyotomi Hideyoshi (1537-98), the warlord who united Japan at the end of a 150 year period of civil war: in both times, the state leadership of the archipelago sought to expand its authority onto mainland Asia through both war and negotiation. These two period stand out in Japanese history as examples of only a very few instances when Japanese states had taken such an interest in continental affairs. Writers who recounted the story of Hideyoshi and his continental ambitions at the close the the ...
Korean-Ness: Creating And Embracing New Identities Through Language And Culture, 2017 University of San Francisco
Korean-Ness: Creating And Embracing New Identities Through Language And Culture, Damon Dohe, Daniel Shin
Creative Activity and Research Day - CARD
Technological advances in communications and transportation have unlocked new pathways for mobilizing transnational flows of people, information, and culture. The cyber-networked landscape in which we now live has enabled a pluralistic existence, no longer restricted to singular definitions of citizenship, identity, and cultural membership. In the era of the internet and globalization, the world is often said to be “shrinking.” However, instead of a smaller or simpler world, our project illustrates far more layered and complex relationships and positionalities. This multi-sited research project focuses on the ways in which Korean immigrants and Korean Americans use language to establish cultural networks ...

Kim Was Korea And Korea Was Kim: The Formation Of Juche Ideology And Personality Cult In North Korea, Bianca Trifoi
FIU Electronic Theses and Dissertations
Juche ideology, created by founder Kim Il-Sung, governs all aspects of North Korean society.

It is a historical analysis of the formation of the North Korean state that considers developments from the late 19th century to the late 20th century, with particular attention paid to the 1950s-1970s and to Kim’s own writings and speeches. The thesis argues that Juche was successfully implemented and institutionalized in North Korea due to several factors, including ...

Life And Seoul Of The Party: South Korea’S Brief Occupation Under Communist North Korea, 2017 Central Washington University
Life And Seoul Of The Party: South Korea’S Brief Occupation Under Communist North Korea, Catherine Rose Graham
All Master's Theses
This thesis analyzes the North Korean occupation of Seoul through the oral histories of the men and women who experienced the event. At the beginning of the Korean War, North Korean forces successfully captured and held the South Korean capital for three months. Despite the occupation’s interesting premise, it has received little attention from Korean War scholars. Interviews with the people who lived through the Korean War though, demonstrate that from their point of view, the occupation was a particularly significant part of their war experience.
Mythbusting Park Chung Hee: A Reexamination Of Park And His Coup, 2016 Pittsburg State University
Mythbusting Park Chung Hee: A Reexamination Of Park And His Coup, Justin Malzac
Electronic Thesis Collection
Park Chung-Hee is a divisive figure. For some he is a saint that rescued his country from the brink of collapse and helped it rise into modernity. For others he is a devil, an iron-fisted dictator who cared more about his own power than his people. Both of these are politically slanted myths promoted as part of a corresponding political agenda. But even politically neutral writings on Park unwittingly conduct a mythmaking of their own. This paper is an attempt to show that Park Chung-Hee has become a mythological figure in Korean history because the scope of his power, agency ...
South Korean Teachers' Beliefs About Diversity: The Impact On Practice Of Multicultural Education, 2016 Portland State University
South Korean Teachers' Beliefs About Diversity: The Impact On Practice Of Multicultural Education, Marie Yeo
Dissertations and Theses
Teachers in South Korean schools have begun to pay attention to the importance of multicultural education as Korea transforms into a multicultural society from a historically mono culture society. Because of Koreans' pride in the homogeneity of their race, language, and culture, multiculturalism is an idea that is hard for many to accept. Education needs to play a key role in fostering and retaining the value of diversity. Studies suggest that teachers' positive beliefs about diversity play a significant role to develop their multicultural competence and eventually to practice better multicultural education. The problem is little evidence exists in the ...
