AMES 21.02 Science and Technology in the Making of Modern Korea

Science has often been claimed to be universal. Jesuits, Protestant missionaries, scientists, revolutionaries, and policy makers often rely on scientific knowledge as they consider it to be objective and reasonable, hence it helps them easily cross cultural, linguistic, and national boundaries. By using science as a lens, this course aims to view innovations and dilemmas of Korean society. How has the history of science elaborated aspects of Korea that otherwise are overlooked or misunderstood? How does science help us understand Koreans' desires and despair in transforming knowledge making systems both in local and global settings? Students who are interested in both "the history of science and technology in non-western settings" and "East Asian studies" are welcome. All readings are in English. No prior knowledge of Korea or Korean language assumed.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
