Show Summary Details


This concluding chapter summarizees the key findings of this ethnographic study on Korean weddings. It suggests that weddings provide an excellent lens through which to see the changing present, because they will not submit to any fixed ethnographic description of a Korean wedding. The chapter also highlights the prominence of the dichotomies of time and space within the Korean intellectual tradition that influence how Koreans think about weddings and the experience of social change.

Keywords: Korean wedding; ethnographic study; intellectual tradition; social change; ethnographic description
