 The 50th anniversary of Honam Studies Research Center on July 17th

Jeolla province, or the so-called “Honam” region has many historic places and cultural symbols. CNU is a research hub for the culture and history of the region. It is the Honam Studies Research Center that celebrated its 50th anniversary on July 17th. The center was formed in 2008 from the integration of the former Honam Culture Research Center, established in 1963, and the Honam Studies Research Group in 2005. The main purpose of the center is to study traditional Korean culture from a local point of view, and search for history and culture in the Jeolla region, transform cultural content that can be communicated with international populations, and contribute to the development of Korean culture.  
The current research on the sensibility of Honam and Korea under the name of “Establishment of Korean Sensibility as an International Communication Code” that the center has conducted for several years was selected by the National Research Foundation’s Humanity Korea Support Project 2008. Along with research activities, the center has published its research results through more than 50 editions of a biannual scholarly magazine, The Journal of Honam Area Studies and over 70 volumes of academic writings about Honam studies. In addition, it has held academic events and made some academies for citizens to develop their ability to participate in pluralistic and democratic communication.
Director Kim Shin-joong (Professor, Dept. of Korean Language and Literature) said, “As time goes on, an academic research trend tends towards centralization but the development of Korean culture has been based on regional studies. So, we need to cast a light upon regional characteristics and identity.” Jeong Myung-joong who is one of the researchers said, “Honam is rich in history and culture resources. I hope that through our center students find a motive and opportunity to have an interest and affection for this area.” This center is expected to ensure the internal stability of Honam studies as one of the important regional studies.
