prospects and future direction of the field. Professor Deuchler first
arrived at Kyujanggak in 1967 as a young researcher immediately after
receiving her Ph.D. from Harvard University. Her groundbreaking first
book, Confucian Gentlemen and Barbarian Envoys, pioneered the field of
Korean Studies while a subsequent book, The Confucian Transformation
of Korea, was awarded the Chang Chi-yôn Award for Korean History in
1993. Professor Deuchler now resides in Switzerland.
