The Northern Region of Korea

History, Identity, and Culture

Edited by Sun Joo Kim
University of Washington Press
The residents of the three northern provinces of Korea have long had cultural and linguistic characteristics that have marked them as distinct from their brethren in the central and southern provinces. The making and legitimating of centralized Korean nation-states over the centuries, however, have marginalized the northern region and its distinct subjectivities. Contributors to this book address the problem of amnesia regarding this distinct subjectivity of the northern region of Korea in contemporary, historical, and cultural discourses. The authors creatively explore unfamiliar terrain while examining the culture, identity, and regional distinctiveness of the northern region and its people.
RELATED TOPICS: Asian Studies
