A controversial Blue House document says that Chung Yoon-hoi, who was one of President Park Geun-hye`s personal secretaries while she was a lawmaker in the late 1990s through the 2000s, still wields substantial power behind the present administration. The document describes three current presidential secretaries as power brokers who are taking advantage of their close proximity to the president. Cho Eung-cheon, who was the senior presidential secretary for civil affairs, has been accused of leaking the Blue House`s internal circular to the press.

SYMPOSIUM> [INDOLOGY] Toronto Symposium in honor of Alexis Sanderson, March 26-28, 2015

Dear colleagues,

I am happy to announce the following event to be held at the
University of Toronto:

Shaivism and the Tantric Traditions. A Symposium in Honour of Alexis G.
J. S. Sanderson, March 26-28, 2015.

The academic study of "Tantrism" has blossomed in recent decades. Once
dismissed as marginal, or unworthy of serious attention, we now
understand the study of Asia's Hindu, Buddhist, and Jain esoteric or
tantric religious traditions to be integral to the religious and
cultural landscapes of medieval South, Southeast, Central and East
Asia. This shift is reshaping the historiography of medieval India is
in no small measure due to the major contributions of Alexis
Sanderson, Spalding Professor of Eastern Religions and Ethics at
Oxford University. The symposium, to be held at the University of
Toronto, with Sanderson in attendance, seeks to honour and engage with
his scholarship on the eve of his retirement.

For the complete program, please visit:

Conveners: Srilata Raman (University of Toronto and Shaman Hatley
(Concordia University)

Venue: Croft Chapter House, University College, University of Toronto

The event is sponsored by:

Hōjō Tamio & Kathryn M. Tanaka


The writer Hōjō Tamio died at the age of 23 in 1937 in quarantine at a hospital outside of Tokyo. Taken as a pupil by Kawabata Yasunari, Hōjō became known for his fictionalized accounts of the experience of stigmatization of victims of Hansen's Disease in 1930s Japan. Along with an introductory essay, Kathryn M. Tanaka translates his novella, "Life's First Night," which was awarded the Bunshun Bungakkai Prize in 1936.

In late 1979, the South American state of Guyana, under the leadership of Forbes Burnham, received assistance from Pyongyang in importing the tradition of "mass games," the practice of performing dance or gymnastics in massive numbers. This established North Korea as a major influence in Guyana's cultural and political life into the early 1990s. Moe Taylor explains the ideological foundations of this experiment by the Burnham regime in a time of austerity and crisis and the shaping of the practice of mass games by the Guyanese political context.

On January 10, South Korea deported U.S. citizen  Shin Eun-mi and barred her from returning for five years, after detaining her for questioning on charges of violating the National Security Law. Hyun Lee interviews Shin, who has been the subject of controversy in South Korea over her speaking tour on her travels to North Korea. This  made her the target of right-wing attacks, including a bomb detonation. Shin talks about her travel to the North, her experiences speaking about it in the South and the need to bridge the gap between the two Koreas.
The people of Okinawa are not the only victims of the new US military base in Henoko. The diverse ecosystem of Oura Bay supporting thousands of species of marine life, the last of its kind in Japan, is threatened to be wiped out by concrete building the proposed base. Katherine Muzik writes of her recent visit to the bay's coral reefs, calling for an end to this violence against nature.

Silk Road Lecture, Stanford University

Michael Frachetti, Assoc. Professor, Dept. of Anthropology, Washington University, St. Louis
“Bronze Age Inhabitation, Mobility, and Displacement among the first farming herders of highland Inner Asia:  case studies from Eastern Kazakhstan”
Thursday, Jan. 29, 2015 at 5 p.m. (note new time)
Stanford Archaeology Center, Bldg. 500, 488 Escondido Mall (behind the Main Quad’s Memorial Church, towards the clock tower)

The discovery of the earliest known domestic grains and the first evidence for the integration of farming, recently documented at multi-period campsites built by nomadic pastoralists over 4000 years, was found by the Dzhungar Mountains Archaeology project in eastern Kazakhstan. These discoveries allow us to revise our understanding of Bronze Age economic strategies across Eurasia, indicating inter-regional engagement and participation.

Michael Frachetti’s research focuses on the dynamic strategies of nomadic societies living in the steppes, mountains, and deserts of Central and Eastern Eurasia, from prehistory to more recent times.  He is author of Pastoralist Landscapes and Social interaction in Bronze Age Eurasia (UC Press, 2008).
