This Year we explored Korean culture and society during the Nam Center’s third Annual workshop for educators. We learned how Korea has moved from an agrarian society to one of the leading economies of the world in less than 75 years. There were presentations from leading researchers on contemporary Korean culture, Youngju Ryu and Natsu Oyobe, and an installation by Young-Hae Chang Heavy Industries, a Seoul-based contemporary art group. Training the K-12 colleagues about Korea will equip participants with tactics to incorporate Korean material into their classrooms.
