The book Everyday Life in Joseon-Era Korea edited and co-translated by Dr Michael D. Shin, Lecturer in Korean Studies, was named a 2014 "Outstanding Academic Title" by Choice Magazine, which was announced in the January 2015 issue. 

Choice is a publication of the Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL), a division of the American Library Association. Founded in 1964, Choice has for over 50 years been the premier source for reviews of academic books and digital resources of interest to scholars and students in higher education. 

The Choice subject editors recognize the most significant titles reviewed each calendar year by compiling the “Outstanding Academic Titles” (OAT) list, which is published each January in Choice magazine and on Choice Reviews Online.
