Response #2

This is a 2-3-page double-spaced response assignment. 

In recent decades in South Korea shamanism, which one might expect to diminish with the progression of South Korean modernity, has experienced a dramatic revival and flourishing. In particular, Central and Northern-style ecstatic shamanism, involving spirit possession, has flourished. With reference to the posted reading selection from (above) Laurel Kendall’s Shamans, Nostalgias, and the IMF: South Korean Popular Religion in Motion, describe the reasons for this resurgence. Is there perhaps a mutually encouraging relationship between modernization or modern life and ecstatic shamanism?  What is useful/appealing about shamanism in contemporary South Korean life?  As part of this, describe the utility and importance of improvisation (including musical and dance improvisation) in ecstatic shamanism, and speculate about its role in this modern resurgence of the practice.  The Lee article, also attached, may be helpful as well. Be careful to draw on the readings in your essay, and to cite your sources.
