KRNS2675 - Contemporary Korean Society and Culture

Semester 1, 2012  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Duk-Soo Park

Description

This unit will provide students with a good understanding of contemporary Korean society and culture by examining not only current issues in Korea (such as legal, political, economic, educational and family matters), but also the Korean people's living style affected by these various issues. The latter will include daily life, gender issues, business culture, entertainment, youth and popular culture. Students also look at the application and/or implication of a certain Korean culture or practice to domestic and international communities; e.g. to South Korea which pursues rapid globalisation or to a multi-cultural society like Australia.
