In this colloquium, top scholars in Korean studies will focus on the history of medicine and mental health in Korea, especially in relation to reproduction and childhood. Speakers will discuss how, in the Japanese colonial period, biomedical research in Korea on reproduction and women’s health was conducted as a political tool for the empire; the role of the media in the 20th and early 21st century in decreasing the stigma of mental illness; and the growth of psychiatry, psychology, counseling, and cutting edge research on human behavior.
