Representation of Contemporary Issues in Korean Culture in relation with Specifics of Mentality

The main subject of this lecture is the representation in contemporary Korean culture of social, environmental, political and other issues important for the 20-21 century (family and generations, gender issues, economical challenges, education, conflicts serving, Tokyo, Fukushima related issues etc.). The lecture will concern the way, how various contemporary issues are represented and dealt with in such spheres as education, literature, movies, television dramas, cultural campaigns, advertisement, project titles, corporate culture etc. Also it will analyze on the suggested ways to solve the problems. The lecturer will concentrate on the cultural specifics of the above representations that will cover Korean values, understanding of the world, ethnic psychology. Comparisons with Chinese and Japanese examples will help draw the specifics of the Korean approach. To explain the material we will concern numerous examples borrowed from the contemporary culture and try to trace their roots. The main goal is to attain a deeper understanding of contemporary culture and to learn about the behavioral and other patterns that form the way Koreans live and deal with issues they face.
