Korea Culture Research Institute


As one of the oldest research institutes at Ewha Womans University, the Korea Culture Research Institute was established under the president of the university in May 1958 in order to study various fields from humanities to society and arts and to contribute to the development of Korean culture. These goals were based on the awareness of academia and universities which used to mainly focus on introducing foreign cultures after the independence of 1945, to study Korean culture further and the necessity of letting the world know our culture. When the institution just got started, it also studied life science focusing on natural science, which was suitable for the intention to find new Korean studies with emphasis on applied researches for systemizing Korean life style. Currently, the institution devotes itself to doing researches on a wide range of Korean studies mainly focusing on humanities and to share it with other academic areas. Thus, since the late 1950s, the Korea Culture Research Institute has been aware of the necessity of Korean studies and has a significance as a leading research institute among other universities in Korea.
