Dear Korea List Serve members,

It is my pleasure to announce that the Journal of Korean Studies Volume 21, no. 1 (Spring 2016) is now available.  Digital copies are available through Project Muse and hard copies are available through Rowman and Littelfield Press.  We dedicated the Spring Issue to Dr. Nancy Abellman who was an active member of our editorial board and a dear friend and colleague.   We believe this issue would have been of particular interest to her.  In addition to having a wide variety of topics in this issue we also have published our first interview "The Interview: Life of North Korean Author Paek Namnyong" by Immanuel Kim.

Here is a sneak peak at the Table of Contents:
