Inside North Korea
with Mark Wenzel
This course examines the political, social and economic life of North Korea. We will study the formation of the North Korean state and the forces that have driven it in the last 70 years. As the U.S. government seeks an agreement with North Korea to address nuclear weapons and regional security, this course provides important historical and current context. Topics will include arms development, gulags, education, propaganda, diplomacy, food insecurity and more. The class structure will include videos, in-class readings, small and large group discussions.
