Featured Jr. Researcher: Russell Burge

Russell Burge is a U.S. Fulbright Junior Researcher in Seoul. His research looks at city growth and social change during the 1960s and 1970s, a time in which South Korea underwent rapid development, shifting from a rural to urban society. His focus is on the history of Seoul, which was the largest center of rural-urban migration and quadrupled in size during these decades.
