PhD title: Shakespeare in Korea: history, translation and adaptation
SupervisorDr Erin Sullivan and Professor Michael Dobson
PhD Shakespeare Studies


My dissertation aims to trace how Shakespeare has been received by the Korean people from the early twentieth century to the present day. I am motivated by the fact that my research would contribute to Korean Shakespeare, as neither a publication encompassing history, translation, adaptation nor a large body of critical discussion on Korean Shakespeare yet exists, even in the Korean language. Throughout the thesis, I will keep asking the way how Korean artists display Korean identity through their various Shakespearean adaptations.
