Technical knowledge in the late Chosǒn dynasty – University of Copenhagen

Technical knowledge in the late Chosǒn dynasty

Guest lecture by Dr. Florian Poelking (Ruhr-Universität Bochum).

The late Choson dynasty has been characterized by some historians as stagnant and backward, and at the same time as early modern and comparable to the European renaissance by others. This lecture questions both views.

Please direct any questions regarding the lecture to Assistant Professor Barbara Wall.
