Dear Fellow Scholars on Tonghak (Donghak)/Chondogyo:
International Conference on Donghak Revolution will be held in Seoul on 9/12/06. It is a review of the studies on Donghak and Donghak Revolution throughout the world. I was asked to speak about the Studies of Donghak and Donghak Revolution in the English Speaking Countries. I need to analyze and evaluate doctoral and masters dissertations, books, and articles related to my topic. If you or others that you know have done works in the area of my concern, please contact me ASAP, sending your/their email addresses, the titles of the works, and reference sources, etc.
I have contact with several scholars (Bell, Kallander, Carl Young, and Beirne) already and collected some materials from them. I already have some materials of Weems, Noh Jung-sun, Kim Chong-suh, and Chung Chai-shik. However, when I searched Dissertation Abstract site on internet, I found c. ten more who wrote doctoral or masters thesis on D/C in English. They are: Rhee, Heng Dong; Jun, Hyun-Shik; Kim, Dongno; Chung, Tae-shin; Cho, Chan-rai; Nagano, Shinichiro; Yoon, Hyung-sook; Kim, Han-gu; Chung, Kiyul; An, Sang Jin. I found most of them in KEY (Tonghak) and some in KEY (Donghak). If you are one of these scholars or if you know them, please contact me immediately, providing your/their email addresses so that I may contact to get some information.
Your help will be deeply appreciated.
