David did an excellent job of simplifying the different time periods of Korea. It was easy to keep track. Even though I have experience with Korea I felt this helped me make sense of the different eras. Plus I learned some interesting new facts. I am looking forward to more Korea Talks in the future. Thank you for making this one available!
Pleasant lecturer but short on details . I also questioned some of his information.
David Mason presented a lot of history in a small amount of time, but it didn't feel rushed and I learned a lot. He clearly knows his stuff!
A broad overview of the Golden Ages in Korea's history with emphasis on Unesco World Heritage sites was too rambling in the beginning and would have been more interesting with some exposure to some of the great artworks and textiles emerging during those periods. The building interiors were especially interesting.
David was a great instructor, very interesting and knowledgeable, and his talk was quite engaging. I learned a lot about Korea and appreciate his insights and perspective from having lived and studied there for so many years. I would definitely take another class from from him, and highly recommend this one.
