Carl Young's research interests focus on religious social movements, nationalism, and imperialism in modern Asia, centering especially on Korea and Japan. He also has a strong interest in comparative world history and cross-cultural interaction between different world regions, focusing on Asia as a case study. His previous research has dealt with a comparison of South Korean minjung (popular) theology and Latin American liberation theology in the 1970's and 1980's and an investigation of the Tonghak (Eastern Learning) and Ch'ôndogyo (Religion of the Heavenly Way) movements in Korea between 1895 and 1910. His teaching interests include East and Southeast Asian history, and the history of religion, nationalism, imperialism, and international relations in Asia.
