This week will be a special one for Korea in Leiden: professor Remco Breuker will hold his inaugural lecture for Koreastudies, making North Korea very much the focus of all kinds of events this week.

Here’s an overview of this week’s programme:

  • On Wednesday, September 19, Dr. Geir Helgesen (NIAS) will hold a lecture entitled “A User’s Manual to North Korea” in De Waag, Aalmarkt 12, from 4:15 till 6:30 PM (IIAS reception to follow, entrance is free)
  • On Thursday, September 20, there will be a full day (closed) launch of the Leiden Initiative on North Korea (IIAS)
  • On Friday, September 21, prof. Remco Breuker will hold his inaugural lecture at 4 PM sharp in the Academiegebouw – if you would like to attend this lecture and ceremony, sign up through this link

Books on North Korea
Of course the East Asian Library will join in this week’s focus on North Korea ! We have put an interesting collection of our library’s books on North Korea on view in the reading room.

Movies on North Korea
Because the library has quite a large selection of films and documentaries on (North) Korea, we will show a selection inside the library this week. In the ‘movie corner’ of the library – from the entrance to the right – there will be an ongoing show every day (except Friday). Feel free to drop in and watch any time you like!

Here is this week’s programme of movies on North Korea:

  • Mon Sep 17 南部軍 Nambugun: North Korean Partisan in South Korea [film]
  • Tue Sep 18 천리마 축구단 the Game of their Lives [documentary]
  • Wed Sep 19 The road Taken [documentary]
  • Thursday September 20: evening movie: The Flower Girl. This great North Korean classic is showing from 4.15 PM. Entrance is free!
