Asian Ethnicity (Routledge) invites papers for a special issue on modern Korean identity and minorities
September 15, 2019
Korea in the 21st century is a rapidly changing society with many different groups of people migrating there, but also more Koreans are migrating elsewhere. This means that there has been a great transformation taking place on a peninsula that often has been described as homogenous. Koreans have been forced to accept this inevitable change, encountering difficulties trying to cope with ‘multiculturalism’, while attempting to integrate (with varying degrees of success) various minorities from places in Asia such as China and Vietnam, but also from Europe and the United States, as well as political refugees from Yemen. This special issues hopes to explore modern Korean identity and minorities, both in terms of ethnicity, but also in relation other minorities, such as the LGBTQ community, and ‘others’ seeking their own place/space and the rights that they should be entitled to. We hope this issue will bring together a collection of insightful papers from international scholars working on varied topics, using different approaches.
