Jeonju university’s Korean institute of humanities was selected as HK+ support project in 2018 which is organized by Korea Research Foundation.

Through reconsidering confucianism, the research, which is conducted with the theme of ‘Deterritorialization of confucianism and coexistence of anthropology and future community,’ suggested an alternative for future community to deal with rapid social changes such as family disbandment, population cliff, and the fourth industrialization.

Using the local humanities assets, it will operate local contact lectures, educational programs, humanities lectures for middle and high school students, and humanities lectures for underprivileged group. Through this business, Jeonju university is expected to get closer to the local community.
