Building a historical record of the Korean American community:

KQ premieres the first segment of its digital archive 

The Korean Quarterly Digital Archive, that will feature all 98 quarterly issues (published from 1997 to 2022) is now in production.  

The first segment of the archive (2009 to 2022) is now online available for reading and downloading, with a broader search capacity to be complete soon.  It will be a user-friendly archive for all readers and researchers.  Also, in 2024, all the issues, back to the first issue published in 1997, will be online. 

With a significant grant from the Thomas and Wonsook Foundation, KQ has begun building the digital archive structure ~ however, we are still a little over $5,000 short of our total fundraising goal.  With your help, we can fully fund this project! 

The archive will allow easy access for casual readers, scholars and researchers to access that “first rough draft” as seen through the KQ lens.   The digital archive will allow readers to dig deeper with ease, whether you are perusing recipes or researching the National Security Law in South Korea.   

Korean Quarterly is a home-grown Minnesota non-profit media organization created by a diverse group of Korean Americans, adopted Koreans and allies who cofounded this unique newspaper in 1997.  

Korean Quarterly is made by a village of volunteer contributors, from seasoned Korea-watchers, photographers, and artists, to beginning writers who believe they have something to say.
