Each one of us has some conception of North Korea.

There is much historical evidence to show that Italian Fascists and German Nazis were inspired...   More >

Vladimir Tikhonov, Professor, University of Oslo

Center for Korean Studies (CKS)


Contrary to the commonly accepted wisdom, Korean society never was “ethnically homogeneous,” even before the onset of the epoch of multiculturalism in the 1990s in South Korea. In pre-colonial and colonial Korea, ethnic Chinese – mostly from Shandong – were the main non-Korean ethnic group residing in Korea, alongside with (much more numerous) Japanese. By 1910, they numbered ca. 2000; by 1931,...   More >

Susan Holloway, Education, UC Berkeley

Laura C. Nelson, Gender & Women’s Studies, UC Berkeley

Institute of East Asian Studies (IEAS), Center for Japanese Studies (CJS)


In the mid to late 20th century, Japanese women developed a reputation among Western scholars as exceedingly competent parents, whereas fathers were viewed as dependable wage earners but marginal participants in family life. Recent challenges in Japan have undermined these images of stability and competence, leaving some observers with a sense that Japanese parents have lost their way.
