The College of Humanities at DongGuk University(DGU) joined in this festival for the first time for the purpose of sharing humanities with the public in general. The theme of the program DGU provided was "Humanity and living - a look at the world from a humanities point of view."
The programs which DGU designed consisted of three main parts: 1)lecture and discussion, 2)experience in culture and exploration and 3)the display of public photographs. There were six programs in total, one for each day during humanities week, while the photo exhibition 'multiculturalism and life, family and community' was held in main library throughout the week.
On the odd number days (1st, 3rd, and 5th), people toured the heart of downtown Seoul around DGU to enjoy the city’s landscape from a humanities point of view. The first day was a tour of Namsan architecture, the third day was a ‘Cultural trip in Meongdong’ and the fifth day was a ‘Folklore tour of Seoul’ guided by Lee Seung-su, a professor at Chung-Ang University. On the even number days (2nd, 4th, and 6th), lectures and discussions were given along the common theme of Humanity and Living in the Dahyang Hall.
DGU’s participation in humanities week was a good opportunity to share knowledge of humanities of which most people lack. You can find more information about this festival at http://hweek.krf.or.kr.
