Sejong University

Gender Advertisements in the Korean Context (Version. 4.0!)

As promised, here is the latest version of the lecture that has kept me so busy recently, which I’ll be delivering for a fourth time at Sejong University tomorrow. Any comments or suggestions would be most appreciated.

Also, as the friend I’m staying with ironically has to come down to Busan on the very weekend I’m coming up to Seoul, then I’ll be free all Sunday, and so was planning to spend much of it looking pretentious in coffee shops, then going to Kyobo and What The Book – after all, what else is there to do in a city of 24.5 million people? But if any readers are free though, and would like to have a coffee or something in the Itaewon or Jongno areas, then please give me a buzz!

Ben's Wedding and some Confocal Microscopy

Nearly half a year has passed since Heather and I got married in Busan. And if you're not yet married and wondering "So how's married life?" well, it's really similar to life before marriage. Getting married is a good thing overall, but just make sure you choose the right person. Luckily, I did.

Not sure whether she did though...

Ben is a Canadian teacher at Heather's new CDI branch and we were invited to the wedding. Heather has only been working a couple of months and I'd never met any of the teachers from the branch before, so it was a nice gesture. The ceremony was held at a wedding hall (I think the name was Suaviss) north of the river.
