Abstract
This thesis is written in two phases. Phase 1 is a critical-historical description of a widely perceived crisis in (South) Korean mothering practices, especially with respect to English as a foreign language (EFL) learning and its implications in the broader spectrum of Korean education. Phase 2 is an examination of two themes in particular: (a) a genealogical exploration of the politico-economic background in which a monopolistic power structure has contributed to the formation of a new model of Korean mothering, and (b) a semiotic interpretation of apartment mothering, a sociogeographical structure that has been cultured at the interface between market and education, in a way that is unique to the Korean context.
