Daniel Pieper is a Post-doctoral Fellow and Sessional Lecturer focusing on modern Korean cultural history. He received his PhD in Asian Studies in 2017 from the University of British Columbia, and an MA in East Asian studies from Washington University. His thesis research is focused on the emergence of language education as a discrete element in the modern school, the textual differentiation process of cosmopolitan Hanmun and vernacular Korean, and the role of language ideology in directing language standardization and informing the larger paradigm of linguistic modernity in pre-colonial and colonial-era Korea. His current research project is titled Redemption and Regret: The Ambivalence of Korean Modernization in the Writings of James Scarth Gale, Missionary to Korea (1888-1927) and examines themes of linguistic modernity, literarization, and literary translation in the missionary’s unpublished writings. This book will be published by the University of Toronto Press in 2018.
