HK Civilization Research Project

At a time when globalization and the clash of the civilizations are redefining the twenty-first century, the HK Project takes pride in its mission to reflect on and evaluate the meaning of the field of Korean humanities in a global context. In order to do so, we help experts in the traditionally humanistic fields of literature, history, and philosophy--as well as in the fields of political science, geology, anthropology, architecture, medical history, scientific technology--to come together to provide solutions to current issues. Secondly, rather than deal with abstract and vague discussions about civilization, we seek to understand and analyze various civilizations through studying concrete texts they have produced. Our first phase of research focuses on understanding the origins and identities of the civilizations of Europe and Asia. Our organization will work through numerous phases to expand both its academic network and areas of research, produce more in-depth discourse on humanities, and become a hub for Korean humanities studies.

Principal Activities

The HK Project carries out regular bimonthly "Texts of Civilizations" colloquia, monthly "Civilization Studies Symposiums," monthly "Civilization Studies Presentations," biannual "Civilization Forums" and annual "Explorations of the Origins of Civilization." We also have civilization symposiums and workshops on an ad hoc basis. Furthermore, we encourage and fund seminar groups and are planning to expand our activities to include teaching staff, secondary school students, and the public at large.

In addition, we are in the process of concluding partnership agreements with two institutes associated with the French Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS), the Needham Research Institute at Cambridge University, and the Institute for South Asian Tibetan Buddhist Studies Institute (ISTB) of the University of Wien. We also have ties with Harvard University, Tokyo University, and Kyoto University's research centers.
