Korean Folk Arts on Photo-CD

Of the three great ancient civilizations of East Asia, Korea receives the least attention. Few instructors of introductory Asian civilization classes take much time away from China or Japan to discuss Korea. That is partially because few of us have had much training in Korean history or culture. (Only a few universities in North America offer such courses.) But even if we do feel comfortable discussing Korea in a survey class, we may still refrain from doing so because of a lack of material to share with our students. This photo-CD was produced by the South Korean government to make that second excuse less common.
