- Title: Matchmaker, Matchmaker, Make Me a Match: Migration of Populations
via Marriages in the Past
- Speaker: Physics Deptment-Prof. Sang Hoon
(BK21+ Research Professor. Sungkyunkwan University)
The study of human mobility is both of fundamental importance and of
great potential value. For example, it can be leveraged to facilitate
efficient city planning and improve prevention strategies when faced
with epidemics. Unfortunately, the dearth of comparable historical
data makes it much more difficult to study human mobility patterns
from the past. In this paper, we present an analysis of long-term
human migration, which is important for processes such as urbanization
and the spread of ideas. We demonstrate that the data record from
Korean family books (called “jokbo”) can be used to estimate migration
patterns via marriages from the past 750 years. We apply two
generative models of long-term human mobility to quantify the
relevance of geographical information to human marriage records in the
data, and we find that the wide variety in the geographical distributions of
the clans poses interesting challenges for the direct application of these models.
Using the different geographical distributions of clans, we quantify
the “ergodicity” of clans in terms of how widely and uniformly they have spread across Korea. Based on the correlation between ergodicity and migration
in Korea, we identify two different types of migration patterns: diffusive

- Title: Motivations of Political Donations: Empirical Analysis of Donors
Information in the 18th National Assembly of Korea.
- Speaker: Prof. Hyeon Seok Park
This study examines the patters of political contribution by investigating
the information of political donations in 18th National Assembly of Korea.
The determinants of political donation are empirically analyzed with the data
from the supporters’ organization of each legislator. The results show that big
donors prefer the members of majority party with stronger influence on policy
outcomes compared to the members of minority parties. Moreover, the targets
of big donations change over time with the chage of balance of power between
president and the National Assembly.
Different from bid donations, small-sized donations are affected by the ideology
and personal wealth of individual legislators. Different from popular concern,
small donations are largely driven by the motivation of political participation.
