Publisher’s Description: Korean Quarterly provides independent and alternative reporting on issues of identity, racism, politics and the arts and is a forum for the ideas and creativity of the whole Korean American community.
Our coverage focuses on the place where identity, creativity and culture intersect. We seek out unheard voices and new perspectives. From the Twin Cities to Chicago, LA, NYC, Europe, Pyongyang and Seoul, we have been there to cover a variety of views and issues – from former comfort women, reunification/reconciliation efforts and war crimes tribunals to recording stories from elders and documenting 1.5/2nd generation and adopted Korean perspectives.
Korean Quarterly’s readers are members of the Korean American community, including adopted Koreans, 1.5/2nd generation, bi-racial and intercultural Korean Americans. It also attracts many non-Korean readers, including families of adopted Koreans, other Asian Americans, and people who have an interest in Korean culture and history, the Korean American community or racial and ethnic identity issues of minority populations in America.
Korean Quarterly includes coverage of the arts, politics, Korean culture, business, and national and international news. We publish feature material, such as personality profiles, business features, personal essays, creative writing and poetry. We also do critical analysis, including book, film and music reviews, and editorials. KQ has also received 17 awards of excellence from the MN Newspaper Association and a nomination for a national award for Ethnic Issues coverage in 2002 from the Independent Press Association.
