Korea and India: A Forging Relationship

Do Young Kim . (Editor) Sushila Narsimhan (Editor)
Synopsis Despite long historical and cultural linkages between Korea and India, the understanding of each others' history and culture is both qualitatively and quantitatively limited. Between March 2004 and February 2005, the Department of East Asian Studies organized three international conferences: (i "Korea into the Twenty-first Century" (March 2004); (ii) "Nativization of Korean Language Education" (November 2004); and (iii) "Modernizing Experiences of South Korea and India" (February 2005), with the aim of creating an academic environment for Korean studies at the university level; and secondary to help Indian scholars to understand various aspects of Korean history, politics, economy, society, and culture. The articles indicate a surge of interest among the Koreans about India and vice versa. The interest is no doubt motivated by economic factors, for Korea is emerging as one of the most competitive countries in the Indian market, but there are other reasons as well. The Koreans have also begun to find India a destination for higher studies which is evident from the increasing number of MoUs being signed between Indian and Korean universities. This book makes a modest attempt to open avenues to researchers engaged in the study of Korea, by bringing together in one volume a diverse array of studies, ranging from economics and politics, to language-related problems, religion and philosophy.
