Hye-Joon Yoon is currently Underwood Distinguished Professor of English and Comparative Literature at Yonsei University, Seoul, South Korea. His research interests embrace publishing history, intellectual history, and rhetorical studies of a broad range of works bequeathed to us by the long eighteenth-century Britain. His publication includes Metropolis and Experience: Defoe, Dickens, Joyce (Cambridge Scholars Publishing, 2012) and The Rhetoric of Tenses in Adam Smith’s “The Wealth of Nations” (Brill, 2017). He has also published articles on the Blackwood’s Edinburgh Magazine and The Times Literature Supplement.
The East Asian Intellectual History Network (EAIHN) was founded to provide an opportunity for those intellectual/cultural/socio-political historians based in East Asia to exchange ideas freely, in the hope of establishing a pan-Asian (and trans-Pacific) intellectual platform. While many of the network members are experts of the European Enlightenments, we also hope to discuss their positive and negative impacts on East Asia, with a particular focus on the intellectual and cultural dimensions of the so-called “Western Impact”, in the longer term.
