HIEA 209

Korean Culture and Institutions

Ronald G. Dimberg

This lecture course is the second of a three part sequence on the history of Korea from earliest times into the 21st century.  HIEA 209 covers the period bracketed by the Mongols in the 13th and 14th centuries and the ‘opening’ of Choson in the late 19th century.  Students will study the rise and fall of the Mongols on the peninsula; the founding and consolidation of Choson (1392-1910); social, cultural, political and economic changes on the peninsula through the late 19th century; the unique relationship between Choson and Ming/Qing China; and responses to the real and perceived challenges to the territorial and cultural integrity of Choson in the 19th century..

Reading material for the course will include Korea Old and New; Sources of Korean Tradition; Korea: A Religious History; Classical Korean Literature; and The Five Years’ Crisis, 1866-1871: Korea in the Maelstrom of Western Imperialism.  In addition to assigned reading students will be required to complete two take-home research/writing assignments, one mid-semester and one at the end of the semester, and two in-class quizzes.

The course grade will be based on the writing assignments (25% each), and a mid-semester and a final quiz (25% each).
