A Critical Intellectual Tradition in Korea

Changbi publishes non-fiction, fiction, poetry, comic books and other forms of social critique and cultural studies. There are pages in Korean and English.

This short article teases out some of the complexities of colonialism, eurocentrism, and the idea of reunification in Korea.
I really like the author's questions toward the end regarding the slogan 'think globally/act locally' and the insinuated place of the nation-state within that line of thinking. He asks whether or not nation-states are still relevant and to what degree they are an appropriate structure for overcoming modernity.
Definitely worth a read
