Old Korean (and Japanese) postcards archived in Slovenia (with a partial analysis of Pula collection of East Asian photographs)
13:15 – 14:45 u dvorani 12
1. This is a report on old Korean picture-postcards which are archived in the Republic of Slovenia. The research was conducted in the framework of a larger research on East Asian materials and artefacts, currently being conducted for the first time in Slovenia. It was found that several institutions in Slovene cities (Ljubljana, Piran and Celje) keep Korean or Korea-related postcards. Since the number of Korean postcards is rather small, it was assumed in the beginning of this research that the findings concerning the background of these postcards would be poor, but in fact, this research opened many new insights into directions and contents of further reaserch on exchanges between Korean and Slovene nations through history.

2. In the framework of research on old picture-postcards from East Asia, it was found that many of the postcards were produced and used in the period between 1890s and 1920s. Among their collectors were many individuals who belonged to the Austro-Hungarian Navy which existed between 1867 and 1918. The main ports of the Austro-Hungarian Navy (Seearsenal=naval base) were Venice and Pula, and the Austro-Hungarian Naval Academy (k.u.k. Marine-Akademie) was located in Rijeka. Based on these facts, it was important to continue research in cooperation with museums in today’s Croatia. Last year (in 2018), I came into contact with the museum “Povijesni i pomorski muzej Istre” in Pula and was given a list of photographs from East Asia in their archive. In this section, I would like to present my observation of the collection in Pula, particularly in relation to Korea and Japan.

Orthography problems: How to write Slovene proper names in Korean and Korean proper names in Slovene
For the occasion of the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics in February 2018, the Department of Asian Studies, University of Ljubljana, was consulted by the lecturers and TV/Radio speakers about how to pronounce and write Korean proper nouns and other words which would often appear in every-day news and reports. The discussions with the specialists for orthography and pronunciation of foreign words disclosed many detailed problems which should be solved as soon as possible. With some representative examples, characteristics of the Korean and Slovene/Croatian phonetics, also taking into consideration the Japanese phonetics, will be discussed.

Japanese Korean contrastive studies: East-Asian and interdisciplinary perspective
The beginning of the Korean studies at the Faculty of Arts, University of Ljubljana, goes back to the academic year 2003/04 when a Korean lecturer was invited to join our Department of Asian Studies. The independent undergraduate double-major study program “Koreanistika” came into being more than a decade later, in the academic year 2015/16. Here, diploma theses related to Korea, written by students who studied in our Department of Asian Studies, are presented and analysed. They started to appear as early as 2013/14, and at present there are about 20 of them. Based on the interest and motivation of our students, the future direction of the academic field is predicted.
