Dear Professors, Associate Professors, PhDs, Ladies and Gentlemen,

My name is Dominik Wróblewski. I am a doctoral candidate at Faculty of
International and Political Studies, University of Lodz. My academic
research is related to political approach towards / against Korean

Currently, I am in the Republic of Korea doing my research project.

During my stay I would like to see any shamanistic ceremonies, sacred
places, shrines etc. Is it possible? Where can I find these places?

I have heard that shamanism was suppressed in 1960s, 1970s and 1980s by the
South Korean Governement. Is there any information (literature, digital
data) explaining that period and describing things which were done to
destroy shamanism in Korea? Where can I find information about Misin Tapa
Undong (the movement to destroy superstition, worship of old gods, deities)?

I would be very grateful for any information. Thanks in advance.

I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Best regards,

Wróblewski Dominik
