research overview

  • Marjorie's book project, titled ā€¯Unearthing the Written Cultures of Early Korea and Japan,' focuses on inscribed wood slips known as mokkan excavated from sites in southern Korea and Japan in order to shed light on the written cultures of early historic Paekche (ca. third century-660CE), Silla (ca. third century-935CE) and Japan. In exploring the connections between the written cultures of these three kingdoms, she also investigates the role of allochthons (Korean migrants) at the Japanese court in the development of Sinographic literary culture.
