1 IR 499 Business and Politics on the Korean Peninsula School of International Relations Spring 2011 VKC 150 TTh 11-12:20 Professor David Kang office: 330 VKC Phone: office hours: TTh 12:30-1:30 The Korean peninsula has had geographic importance for politics in Northeast Asia for the past several centuries. Located between Japan and China, Korean domestic politics and international politics have been thoroughly intertwined. Although the study of Korea occurs in isolation from this larger context, this class will put Korean issues in their regional context, as a way of providing better understanding of the issues themselves, and also linking Korean issues to changes in the larger region itself. This course will present an analytic overview of Korean politics, and will treat four main themes: the historical development of Korean politics in its peninsular context, domestic politics and political-economy in Korea, South Korea s contemporary foreign policy situation, and the question of North Korea. I do not presume any prior knowledge of Korea or Korean language, although comfort with theories of international relations and comparative politics would be helpful. Graduate students will have extra assignments, and we will determine the content after the beginning of class. Grading and requirements: 1. In-class midterm(s) (20%) 2. Research paper due April 28, 5 p.m. (40%) 3. Weekly response papers (15%) 4. In-class participation (25%) I expect regular attendance and participation. Use of cellphones in class is strictly prohibited. There are no extensions for late papers or missed exams without a doctor s note. Book required for purchase: Michael Robinson, Korea's Twentieth-Century Odyssey: A Short History (Manoa: The University of Hawaii Press, 2007). 1

Recommended background: If you are unfamiliar with the basic theoretical concepts of international relations or comparative politics, or have limited exposure to Asian security, glancing at these books will provide a good overview. Bruce Cumings, Korea's Place in the Sun: A Modern History (NY: W.W. Norton, 2005). Mark Clifford, Troubled Tiger Don Kirk, Korean Dynasty Statement for Students with Disabilities Any student requesting academic accommodations based on a disability is required to register with Disability Services and Programs (DSP) each semester. A letter of verification for approved accommodations can be obtained from DSP. Please be sure the letter is delivered to me (or to TA) as early in the semester as possible.

General principles of academic honesty include the concept of respect for the intellectual property of others, the expectation that individual work will be submitted unless otherwise allowed by an instructor, and the obligations both to protect one s own academic work from misuse by others as well as to avoid using another s work as one s own. All students are expected to understand and abide by these principles. Scampus, the Student Guidebook, contains the Student Conduct Code in Section 11.00, while the recommended sanctions are located in Appendix A: Students will be referred to the Office of Student Judicial Affairs and Community Standards for further review, should there be any suspicion of academic dishonesty.
