Talk with students from South Korea on Chuseok Festival Eve

 

 Friday, 9 September 2022 at 6 PM

 Lossi 3, room 415

 Facebook event

Chuseok, one of the four major festivals in Korea, falls on September 10 this year! Do you wonder how you can enjoy this festival in Korea either as a Korean student or as an exchange student from abroad? If so, how about getting together at 6 PM on September 9th, just one day before this day? You are welcome to join us for a cosy conversation evening. We are hoping to provide a multicultural lens to the Korean thanksgiving experience. We will be talking about Korean thanksgiving traditions and sharing our stories of celebrating Chuseok in Korea. A Korean student who was accepted into the UT master's program this semester from Seoul, as well as students who were in their exchange student programmes for one semester to one year in Korea, will share their Chuseok memories. Everybody interested in Korea and Korean culture is welcome, so make sure to invite your friends and join us for a fun get-together. On the evening of Chuseok Eve, as a Chuseok gift!

 UT KCC welcomes members who would gladly give their hands and brains to the UT Korean Culture Club to the Monthly Meeting. In fact, we have two good news for UT KCC from Summer! That is, UT KCC organized its first committee including the President Susanna Homuha, and Vice President Stella Arvi. Second, we have come to a monthly meeting every third Friday at 6pm. In this monthly meeting, UT KCC will plan events that meet the needs of more members and make every moment of each event more exciting and beneficial. Of course, this gathering will bring more friendship-like fellowships among UT KCC members!  Are you hoping for any of these to come true? If so, this monthly Talk is the time for you.

We are pleased to invite you to a new special lecture series. Opening the door to the first lecture, Susanna Homuha, who just returned to Tartu after successfully conducting academic research in Seoul, South Korea for a year, welcomes us from 6 PM on October 28th. Notably, she will focus on the issue of illegal cameras in South Korea from a gender perspective based on the analysis of in-depth interviews with both Korean women and experts. It will provide insightful guidance not only on the content of the research but also on how to conduct research in S.Korea financially and academically. If you want to go deeper into Korea and want to conduct research someday soon, this academic lecture is for you!

UT Korean Culture Club cordially invites you to a folk painting workshop from the Joseon Dynasty of Korea. In a nutshell, this workshop focuses on Shin Saimdang's painting of grass and insects, namely, Chochung-do 초충도, presented on the folding screens of her own room. Shin Saimdang is a female artist graced with Korean 50,000 won bills and her biography as an artist was featured in the TV series, titled Saimdang, Light's Diary. For this workshop, a must-know about Minwha will come to you with a lecture and drawing guidance. Not only that, you can choose one from Shin Saimdang's colouring book from Korea and a watercolour pencil will be provided for colouring. Of course, if you bring your own colouring tools, it will help you complete your own unique artwork! Surely, you will be able to meet both theory and practice of Korean traditional art through this workshop!
