Description

"Res Gestae Christiani: My Time as the President of the Cambridge University Korean Society 2002-2003" by Christian Kim is a heart-warming real-life account of the struggle of Korean students at Cambridge University to empower themselves against all odds. At the helm of this endeavor is Christian Kim, who was the President of Cambridge University Korean Society from 2002 to 2003. Christian Kim, a Ph.D. candidate in Hebrew, Jewish, and Early Christian Studies, sets out major objectives to achieve Korean empowerment. Firstly, Christian Kim seeks to disseminate Korean culture and help non-Koreans understand the Korean experience. Thus, Kim invites one of the major literary figures from South Korea to discuss Korean literature. Kim also invited the Ambassador of South Korea, who is now the primary expert on North Korea for the South Korean government, for a special lecture, sponsored together with the Centre for International Studies of Cambridge University. Besides his efforts to help others to better understand Koreans, Christian Kim spearheaded many "firsts" for Koreans in Cambridge University.Kim organized the first ever Cambridge University Korean Society Formal Hall at Jesus College, Cambridge. This is a historic event in the history of Cambridge University and the history of the Korean people in the United Kingdom. Furthermore, Christian Kim organized the first ever all-Chinese get together. This is a historic event for the Chinese people of Cambridge University and an important step in the history of China. Another critically important "first" was the joint program between Cambridge University Korean Society and the Interdisciplinary Japanese Forum. It is the first time in that a major Korean Society in higher education in the European Union sponsored a joint program with the Japanese society at the university. It has historic ramifications. This book contains much important documentation for the study of British history, the history of the Korean people, the history of Chinese people, the history of Japanese people, and the history of higher education. This is a book that serious historians cannot go without.As it is written in a very readable way, this book will be of interest to everyone who has any interest in British history, Cambridge University, Asian history, and sociology.
