Internal Supervisors
Dr Anders Karlsson


 I joined SOAS in 2019. My interest lies in the view and measures on foreigners and foreign culture of Chosŏn Korean. I worked on the topic of hyanghwain during my master. Now, I focus on the nineteenth-century Korean’s perspective and emotion toward the West and civilization.
