In Superficial Korea, a book recently published in South Korea, Gi-Wook Shin, professor of sociology and Shorenstein APARC director, shares his observations on and provides recommendations for social maladies currently affecting Korean society. Shin sees a problematic level of superficiality in a number of aspects of today's Korea: its interpersonal relations, policies and social systems, and rules and regulations.

Dafna Zur, assistant professor of East Asian Language and Cultures at Stanford University, will lead discussion of the book.

If you bring a copy of the book, the author will autograph it.
