Paris Diderot University, also known as Paris 7, will open a master's course on the Korean independence movement history later this year, the Independence Hall of Korea in Cheonan said Thursday.
"(The IHK) and visiting Marie-Orange Rive-Lasan, a professor of the Oriental Literature Department, have agreed on the opening of the provisionally named "History of Korean Independence Movement"
course as part of the regular curriculum of the Korean studies in Paris 7 starting in the fall semester that begins in September," an IHK official said.
The two-credit course will be run as a joint class of Paris 7's Korean Studies and Oriental Literature Departments, and the Practical School of High Studies (EPHE), according to the official.
To that end, the two sides will hold a meeting early next month to discuss details on the opening, including the signing of an agreement between the IHK's Korean Independence Movement History Research Institute and Paris 7, and the collection and translation of basic historical records necessary for the course, the official said.
