Institute of Toe-gye Studies

Established in July 1973, the objective of the Institute of Toe-gye Studies is to study Korean traditional culture systematically and comprehensively, inheriting the spiritual values of the prominent Korean Confucianist, Toe-gye Yi Hwang. As inferred by the name of the institute, which is the scholar’s pen name, its original purpose lies in making Toe-gye symbolic of Korean Studies itself. Therefore, the institute broadens the research without confining it to studies on Toe-gye, and focuses on setting up guidelines for creating a new tradition and culture. So far, the institute has vigorously conducted research: publishing many periodicals, planning academic writings on Toe-gye studies, and hosting international academic conferences in both China and Taiwan.
