Korea @ 2100, a course offered for the first time this summer at 
Harvard, is part of the intensive four-week program, June 25 – July 20.

contemporary place in the world, with a focus on the Korean Wave; Part 
II, the twentieth century, issues of modernity, the Japanese colonial 
occupation, Liberation, Division, the Korean War, and rapid social 
political change; Part III, the historical past(s) as case studies.

interplay of the contemporary and the past.
