Field of Study
Hwisang Cho’s research focuses on the ways written culture interacts with philosophical, social, and political changes. His current project will demonstrate how new modes of reading and writing developed in Korean letter writing triggered a flourishing of Neo-Confucian moral thought, the creation of new kinds of sociocultural power, and the rise of elite politics in the Chosŏn dynasty (1392–1910).
