Dear list members,

I would like to announce the publication of ‘Boundaries and identities
through material culture: multi-disciplinary approaches from Early Korea’ a
special issue of Asian Perspectives (vol. 58 no. 1) co-edited by myself and
Dennis Lee. It can be found at https://muse.jhu.edu/issue/40255

The issue showcases scholarship from early career scholars ranging
chronologically from the Mumun, Iron Age, and Proto-Three Kingdoms to the
Three Kingdoms periods that challenge the geographic, intellectual, and
disciplinary boundaries that have limited Early Korean studies in the past.
The articles draw on literary studies, archaeometric techniques, and
critiques of mainstream historiography in addition to more traditional
historical and archaeological methodologies. Several papers deconstruct
historical periods and polities, with a particular focus on challenging the
textual narrative of the Three Kingdoms period with archaeological data.

The issue also honors the contributions to the field of two great scholars
we lost in 2018. A tribute to Hyung Il Pai is written by Lothar von
Falkenhausen and the issue as a whole is dedicated to Martin Bale.

We’re excited to bring this contribution to the Korean Studies community.
