Professor Ahn is on leave for the Fall 2014 semester.
Professor Juhn Ahn is currently investigating the intricate relation between the transformation of the Koryo elite and the new forms of Buddhism that developed in Korea during the fourteenth century. This research is being developed into a book-length study on the history of medieval Korean Buddhism and its relation to the question of identity among the Koryo elite. In addition to the history of Korean Buddhism, Professor Ahn also conducts research on Choson Dynasty (1392-1910) intellectual history and the history of Chan/Zen learning.
