"Korean Confucianism and Its Debate on Women"

Grant in Aid of Research

Final Report: "I was invited to contribute a chapter to a book, “Chinese Philosophy and Gender Studies,” which will be published by Bloomsbury Publishing. My contribution is on Korean Confucianism and gender studies. This area is very new in the English speaking world, and I needed to go to Korea to collect materials needed for the project. The funding I received from the Research Council was used for the airfare to Korea. I am happy to report that the article for the project is complete and is in the final editing stage right now. Thanks to the GIAR, I could tap into a significant research area, Korean Confucianism, and blend it successfully with another significant research areas, gender studies. The grant has also helped me to think about other, related research projects, and I now plan to go to Korea this summer to discuss a book project with some experts on Korean philosophy. I plan to continue and to work in these areas and to contribute to an understanding of Korean philosophy in both the English and the Korean speaking worlds."
