37551 Introduction to Korean Politics (Professor Ki-Suk Cho)

This course introduces basics of Korean politics. The course is designed to briefly review the modern history of Korean politics and analyze the dynamics of contemporary Korean politics. It will introduce four different epistemological perspectives useful in analyzing politics and social phenomena. Epistemology is like a lens through which we view the world. The course will cover the definition of politics, the contemporary Korean politics and civil society including major political institutions (legislature, political parties, and intermediary groups such as labor union, women’s groups and religious organizations), political culture, elections, history of civil society and civic activism. Prior knowledge of the Korean politics or political theories is not required. Throughout the semester, students will read famous Korean novels to understand Korean society and politics.

37571 Governance and Human Security in East Asia (Professor Brendan Howe, Ph.D.)
This course examines the duty to care incumbent on those who govern towards those who are governed in East Asia. It starts with an inquiry into the concept of “governance,” examining the multitude of political, economic, and ethical dilemmas and theoretical issues associated with it from the perspective of the universal entitlement rights and concurrent responsibilities associated with the concept of global citizenship. It then moves on to discussing the pragmatic issues generated by concerns about human security, organizing them around a set of “responsibilities” towards the most vulnerable sections of national and international society.  The world of today seems to be prone to conflicts, some of which are so violent that they pull down governance and public administration institutions and structures. In such instances, the whole governance and public administration system and structu…

37568 Advanced Topics in East Asian Religion (Prof.Marc Mullinax)

Prof.Mullinax is a faculty of Ewha International Summer Co-ed College and Professor at Department of Religion in Mars Hill University, North Carolina, USA.

Course description

Religion's concern is that which ultimately concerns. The religions of East Asia are culturally-rich sacred quests by their members to develop stories and narratives of meaning about how their visible world works according to unseen laws and forces. Each religion has developed its own vocabulary by which it comes to a partial understanding of, and agreement with such unseen forces. Therefore, each East Asian religion is historically conditioned and culturally enriched; this course will be a rigorous exploration of how East Asian worldviews have developed these religious perspectives.
