[Ewha-Harvard Summer School Program]


In partnership with the Harvard Summer School and the Korea Institute of Harvard University, the Graduate School of International Studies (GSIS) at Ewha has developed the Ewha-Harvard Summer School Program (EHSSP) since 2006. This is an international summer program that provides both Harvard and Ewha students with an opportunity to build mutual friendships and learn about different aspects of Korean culture and history. In order to encourage participating students to experience Korea, the program focuses on various aspects of Korea’s culture and history, and provides rich in-class discussions along with many field trips to culturally and historically significant sites.


Since 2006, the EHSSP has offered a substantive course on one key aspect of Korean culture and history, and for Harvard students a Korean language course. The substantive course has changed every year to take advantage of new trends and interests about Korean culture and history ranging from poetry, North-South Korea relations, archaeology, cities and culture, visual culture including cinema and film-making, societal issues, and etc. The program celebrated its tenth anniversary in 2015, and will continue to flourish in 2019.


In 2019, the Program will offer a course on North Korea with Professor John Park of the Harvard University, and Korean language classes with Professor Hi-Sun Kim of Harvard University with Ewha’s Professors. The North Korea class will study new insights into the North Korean regime through the lens of recent research interviews with defectors. Harvard students will take a Korean language class suited to their individual level of Korean language proficiency. All Harvard and Ewha students will live in the Ewha dormitory and work together as language partners. This program is open to Ewha’s and Harvard’s students and to male and female students. Ewha invites students from other Korean universities, which have credit exchange programs with Ewha. A Certificate of Completion is presented to successful students by the Harvard Summer School and the Dean of Graduate School of International Studies at Ewha Womans University.


Abstract of Course


Professor John Park of Harvard University will offer an undergraduate course, “Thinking Out of The Black Box: Exploring New Insights into North Korea.” The course's objective is to hone students' critical thinking skills by exploring new insights into North Korea through the lens of recent interviews with defectors. The course focuses on deepening ties between the Workers' Party of Korea and the Communist Party of China; increasing commercialization in the elite regime circle (the 1 percent) through state trading company activities and among the masses (the 99 percent) through black markets; and how financial sanctions actually bolster North Korean procurement networks. Possible framing activities may include a tour of the Demilitarized Zone and the Panmunjom Truce Village. The course also includes a component where students can apply critical thinking skills in assessing contemporary media coverage of North Korean defectors.
