At a Glance

How can a Korean be born a Buddhist, marry as a Christian, and die a Confucian? Join Dr. Merose Hwang, Head of the Asian Studies Program at Hiram College, for an examination of South Korean culture. The lecture will begin with a top-down glance at South Korea’s geopolitical position and take you through its pre-history, state ideologies, governing systems, modern history and an exploration of Korea’s old and new religions.
