The 8th Kyujanggak International Symposium on Korean Studies
Documents are not just a historical legacy that reflects past ideas or mentalities; they also give rise continuously to new interpretations, and sometimes even interact with historical memories and serve to reshape them. The purpose of this symposium is therefore to question the contemporary implications of the documentary heritage of Korea. Historical changes in the meaning of recording or producing documents; the manifold social tensions that exist between recording and remembering; the diversity and connotations of various new media for recording history; problems and controversies surrounding the interpretation of historical records; the specificity of the Korean documentary heritage in its global context; these are just some of the subthemes that could be explored.
For this purpose, we have invited scholars from around the world to share their thoughts on various agendas surrounding the main theme.
