Numerous Hanyangians and professors of Hanyang University(HYU) stood united in opposing the Korean government’s proposal to publish a single, state-issued history textbook for secondary schools. A total of 53 professors issued a joint statement denouncing the government’s announcement, and the General Students’ Association(GSA) also took a stand against the matter and participated in a university rally on October 31 at Cheonggye Plaza in downtown Seoul.

On November 3, the government made an announcement regarding the stateauthored Korean history textbook. Before the notice however, GSA showed their opposition to the issue on Facebook on October 14. GSA also participated in a largescale demonstration, exercising their right to free speech, and carrying with them various signs expressing their dissatisfaction.

There were also individual movements. A student in the Department of History on the Seoul Campus posted a handwritten poster about this issue. Also, Lee Doheum, a Professor in the Department of History, expressed opposition on Facebook. “Monopolizing information on history is just like trying to control people’s personal views of the past, the present, and the future. Universities should stage protests in many ways,” Lee said.
