I am teaching this summer at the International Summer School of Hankuk University of Foreign Studies (Seoul, Korea), an exchange program in Korean Studies. The topic is "Korean Food Culture and Globalization". We had today as a guest speaker Choi Jia, Ph.D., who made a presentation about Culinary tourism in Korea. Tomorrow a field trip to a Buddhist temple food restaurant, following last week field trip to Tongin Market.
Two of my articles (in French) are published in the newest issue of "Outre-terre" journal (n°39) :
- about the globalization of Korean food ("Une vague de kimch’i : l’alimentation coréenne face à la mondialisation")
- about the image of the Other in South-Korean cinema (1998-2008) ("L'imaginaire de l'Autre dans le cinéma sud-coréen, 1998-2008").
