Dear Dominik,

A Korean movie Mansin would be helpful.

I believe you can also contact Prof. Seongnae Kim of Sogang.

Good Luck,

Jieun Han

Dear Dominik and List-Serve Members,

A very good human resource with lots of experience in the study of Korean Shamanism, and resident in Korea, is Rev. Daniel Kister, S.J., who I believe can be contacted at Sogang University in Seoul.

If you wish more detailed contact information please contact by individual e-mail and I'll give you what information I have.

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 shamanism.

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
