Full text not available from this repository.


This article explores the historical institutionalism inherent in Korea's National Gugak Centre and the circular exchange mechanisms of the gugak fraternity (schools, colleges, ensembles, orchestras, concerts). I distinguish between court and aristocratic traditions known in previous centuries to a small percentage of the Korean population from the more various min'gan traditions, and show how methodologies and practices developed for the former have been emulated by those within the latter.
