ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to examine Chungnam Asan(牙山) regarding the status and outcomes of projects related to the humanities in the area sponsored by Sunmoon University, one of the universities located there. Presently, projects intended to promote the humanities or cultural development in the region are being carried out nationwide in Korea. Along with the trends, in Asan, too, they are developing projects intended to vitalize old downtown area, develop cultural contents in the region, enhance the humanities in the region, or to excavate or utilize resources of history and culture. In fact, Sunmoon University’s department of history and cultural contents is aggressively participating in the projects. So far, national projects or projects sponsored by the Ministry of Education have been mainly considered to be done by professors of engineering, and it has been regarded as virtue that majors of the humanities should stay away from them. These days, however, majors of the humanities or liberal arts are in desperate reality that they also should pay attention to that matter and cope with or participate in it positively not to fall behind. Even projects to promote the humanities have been mostly dealt with in the aspects of urban or architectural engineering while the humanities have been playing only auxiliary roles in them. Now is the time to conduct competitive research differentiated from what has been done by universities of engineering by developing new methodology in the aspects of the humanities and sociology and also supporting scholars of the humanities join in them actively. This study is going to deal with this issue focusing on Asan.
