Daniel Pieper is a Lecturer in East Asian Languages and Cultures at Washington University in St. Louis. He received his PhD in Asian Studies from the University of British Columbia. His current research focuses on the emergence of vernacular Korean as a discrete subject in the modern school, the textual differentiation process of cosmopolitan Hanmun and vernacular Korean, and the role of language ideology in directing language standardization in pre-colonial and colonial-era Korea. A forthcoming book titled Redemption and Regret: Modernizing Korea in the Writings of James Scarth Gale examines themes of vernacularization, linguistic modernity, and literary translation in the missionary’s unpublished writings.
