CKS Seminar Programme

The Centre of Korean Studies seminar series regularly presents current research on Korea, with a focus on European scholarship. Since the academic year 2005/06, the Centre has been able to hold these seminars on a weekly basis due to support from the ELP programme (as major contributor in 2005/06), and the SOAS-AKS Institution Project (as major contributor from 2006/07 onwards).

The seminars are free and open to the public unless otherwise stated.

Registration is essential to guarantee a place.

Please note that we do not distribute seminar notes.

Making “Aristocracy” of Koryŏ Dynasty (918-1392) in Korean Historiography

Hyosub Kim (Sungkyunkwan University)

Since the early twentieth century there has been an ongoing discussion regarding the ruling class in Koryŏ dynasty (918-1392). This debate is very much related to the arguments about the development of Korean history. In this talk, Hyosub Kim will discuss how the debate defining Koryŏ’s ruling class as the aristocracy has developed since the 1960s.
