Dear colleagues,
I would like to announce the publication of Vol. 4 of Korean Anthropology Review: A journal of Korean anthropology in translation.
This time we have selected articles that focus on space and place as anthropological problems. The fourth volume also expands the geographical scope of our journal by including pieces that deal not only with South Korea but also present research conducted in another locale, Japan. Our goal is to showcase the geographical diversity of South Korean anthropologists’ interests, and we intend to continue translating articles that look beyond Korea for future volumes.
Please see the table of contents below. All articles can be viewed online at, and there is a link on the website for requesting print copies.

Korean Anthropology Review: A journal of Korean anthropology in translation
Published by the Department of Anthropology at Seoul National University, Korean Anthropology Review: A journal of Korean anthropology in translation (KAR) introduces Korean anthropological scholarship to international audiences, by carrying English translations of Korean-language articles previously published in Korean anthropology journals. KAR selects from the finest anthropological research by Korean anthropologists that builds on their particular concerns and intellectual heritage yet is open to global engagement. The aim of this English-language journal is to foster dialogues between the intellectual traditions of Korean anthropology, on the one hand, and global and other regional anthropologies, on the other. Through such dialogues, KAR seeks to contribute to the global commons of anthropological knowledge by bringing in theoretical and ethnographic dimensions salient in the Korean context yet with broader implications.
