Note from the Editors

From: Journal of Korean Studies
Volume 18, Number 1, Spring 2013
p. 5 | 10.1353/jks.2013.0011

In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

Our volume for spring 2013 reflects the growing breadth of the Korea field. As more of the young scholars that we try to serve in our journal enter into the field, the variety of subjects that they are willing and able to treat is growing. Whereas in the past our articles tended to be limited to history and literature with the occasional social science article, in this volume we have papers treating such legal matters as dual citizenship, traditional performing arts, and Koryŏ Buddhism. Our articles on literature and film go beyond description and literary analysis to treat discursive themes in Korean culture. New articles are coming in at a good clip, so we hope that future volumes will get fatter.

Not only do our articles reflect the growth of the field, but our reviews do as well. We are reviewing eight new books, three of which comprise a translation of the first three volumes of Pak Kyŏng-ni’s T’oji (Land). And we note with satisfaction that several of the books being reviewed are able to treat Korea in the context of East Asia as a whole. We now have a huge backlog of books that need reviewing, so please view, with kindness, our requests for reviews in the upcoming year.

In this issue we are reviewing a Korean film. We hope that reviews of Korean films will become a regular feature of the Journal of Korean Studies.
