Introduction

Ewha Institute for the Humanities (EIH) has been established on August 1st, 2007 as a research institute to overcome the crisis of humanities and actively respond to the changes in knowledge, technology and culture of the 21st-century, working on the Korean Research Foundation’s “Humanities Korea Project” with “Trans-Humanities: Reimagining and Reconstructing the Human Sciences” as its agenda. It is developing itself into an international hub for devising new paradigms for humanities research on the human and knowledge, currently focusing on posthumanism and trans-boundary knowledge.

The EIH holds colloquia on a regular basis, and hosts yearly national and international conferences to share its research results. It has created consistent and mutually beneficial partnerships with globally-renowned research institutions such as Université Paris-Est, Université Paris VIII of France, Fudan University, and the Beyond Humanism Network. Academic book series Trans-humanities series, Research series, Translation series, Posthuman series, Humanities Knowledge series, Sa-i series and a scholarly journal Trans-Humanities are published to integrate humanities knowledge in society.
