The rush and pressure of modern life are a form, perhaps the most common form, of its innate violence. To allow oneself to be carried away by a multitude of conflicting concerns, to surrender to too many demands, to commit oneself to too many projects, to want to help everyone in everything is to succumb to violence. More than that, it is cooperation in violence. The frenzy of the activist…destroys his own inner capacity for peace. It destroys the fruitfulness of his own work, because it kills the root of inner wisdom which makes work fruitful.
Thomas Merton, as quoted in Courtney Martin’s weekly column for On Being, "The Spiritual Art of Saying No"

CALLING ALL STUDENTS OF ANTHROPOLOGY, ETHNOGRAPHY, AND RESEARCHERS OF QUALITATIVE SOCIAL STUDIES!

Hallyu Ethnography is a just-launched network of students in these fields who research, write, and read academic work on K-Pop and contemporary Korean pop media. We aim to be a place where college undergrads, unpublished Masters candidates and unaffiliated lay researchers (etc) can network to share ideas, resources, and inspiration. We aim to make our data sources available to each other as much as possible, and to encourage students at all levels to ask difficult (or even embarrassing!) questions. We’re looking for members who want to share their ideas and help others develop their own, give and get feedback on work, and provide a future professional/academic network for those of us who wish to pursue this area of study.
Please boost this even if you’re not interested in joining in case you have interested followers! Tweet it! Spread it on any network you can! Researchers on this subject are few and far between and we need your help to reach everyone!

HALLYU ETHNOGRAPHY FACEBOOK GROUP

If you’re interested in helping document the influence of kpop, kdramas, k-indie, k-cinema, or all of the above, please consider joining this group! At the very least, we’ll trade a lot of free pdfs on Hallyu, but more importantly, it’ll be a collaboration to systematically build the knowledge base about k-fandom.
