We are pleased to announce the publication of the Spring 2012 issue of the Korea Journal (vol. 52, no. 1), which covers the special topic of “A Cultural History of Korean Toponyms.” Toponym is a term derived from two Greek words, topos and onmya (the Aeolic and Doric form of onoma)meaning “place” and “name,” respectivelywhich is used in the study of place names. This special issue addresses Korean toponyms as both a cultural and a linguistic phenomenon. The first two articles in this issue study Korean toponyms from the perspective of linguistic history, while the third to fifth articles examine them, from geographers’ perspectives, as a cultural phenomenon that reflects the settlement history and power relations of the ! settlers.
The first article by Kim Jeong-tae examines the characteristics of phoneme variation that have resulted in toponymic variation across space and time in Korea. Park Byeong-Cherl’s article traces the linguistic histories of toponymic back morphemes, the generic elements, through the study of toponyms related to gogae (pass). In contrast, Jung Chi-young’s article examines the specific elements of village names, the toponymic front morpheme, in order to explore the environmental perception among the villagers. The fourth article by Kim Sun-Bae examines the making of toponyms under the Confucian ideology in the Joseon dynasty and the subsequent contestation of Confucian toponyms with other types of toponyms. The fifth article by Je-Hun Ryu focus! es on the patterns of naming in Bupyeong-gu of Incheon, viewing the toponymic changes as reflecting the long and contentious history of Japanese colonialism, the significance of reinstating Korean toponyms after liberation, and the contemporary politics of culture, identity, and belonging.
In addition, two interesting papers selected from submissions by a thorough peer review process are included in this issue. The paper by Koh Dong-Yeon critically examines the notion of national culture or national aesthetics by looking at the official policy toward manhwa in Korea, which exhibits ambivalence toward the influence of Japanese manga. And the paper by Tae Gyun Park examines the reorientation of South Korean science and technology from a system linked predominantly to Japan during the colonial period to one dominated by U.S. standards and prioritie! s after liberation.
This issue contains eight papers dealing with a variety of topics pertaining to Korean Studies and an insightful book review of Patrick McEachern’s Inside the Red Box: North Korea’s Post-Totalitarian Politics. All of the papers and the book review in this issue have been selected through a rigorous peer review process by the journal’s editorial board as well as guest reviewers.

This issue features the special topic: “A Postmodern Turn in Korean Literature.” It also includes four research papers and two book reviews. 1. A Postmodern Turn in Korean Literature No one doubts that Korean literature currently finds itself in a new environment. Taking into consideration that literature has lost the political and cultural power it exercised in the past, it can be said that Korean literature is facing a kind of crisis. However, the birth of a new, younger generation of writers and their new, experimental literary styles has undeniably given a new stimulus to Korean literature. With this in...
