The Experience of « House » and « Home » in Colonial Korea

Dans le cadre du séminaire pluridisciplinaire d’études coréennes, Hyaeweol Choi (Australian National University, professeur invité de l’EHESS, présente une conférence.

In this presentation I trace the evolution of the idea and image of the “modern home” in late nineteenth and early twentieth century Korea with central focus on the role of the transpacific network. It focuses on the role that American Protestant missionaries, enlightenment-oriented social reformers and foreign-educated intellectuals played in fashioning the ideal home, which came to be reflected in images associated with the “missionary home,” the “home, sweet home” and “a doll’s house.”
