12th Kyujanggak Korean Studies Summer Workshop

Kyujanggak Institute summer workshopFrom June 25 to July 6, 2018, the Kyu­jang­gak Insti­tute for Kore­an Stud­ies will con­duct its 12th sum­mer work­shop for Kore­an stud­ies. The pro­gram is intend­ed for grad­u­ate stu­dents (M.A. and Ph.D.) of all dis­ci­plines of Kore­an stud­ies and offers an oppor­tu­ni­ty to inter­act with Kore­an stud­ies fac­ul­ty at Seoul Nation­al Uni­ver­si­ty. The pro­gram intends to famil­iar­ize stu­dents with the lat­est research trends in a wide vari­ety of fields and to acquaint them with lead­ing schol­ar­ship in the Kore­an lan­guage.

Morn­ing lec­tures con­sist of expo­si­tion of meth­ods and trends in var­i­ous fields, includ­ing his­to­ry, archi­tec­ture, anthro­pol­o­gy, reli­gion, arts, pol­i­tics, and lit­er­a­ture. On the last day, stu­dents will have an oppor­tu­ni­ty to present their research projects and share ini­tial find­ings. Class­es are con­duct­ed in Kore­an, and dis­cus­sion will also take place in Kore­an, but the lev­el will be adjust­ed with the stu­dents in mind.

In the after­noon stu­dents can either take part in the Han­mun work­shop or use the facil­i­ties of Seoul Nation­al Uni­ver­si­ty for self-study or research.

The course reg­is­tra­tion fee is US$500, but stu­dents can apply for a fee-waiving grant as well as trav­el sup­port. Lunch­es are pro­vid­ed at no cost at one of the cam­pus restau­rants.

To apply, com­plete the on-line appli­ca­tion, includ­ing a ref­er­ence let­ter from an aca­d­e­m­ic advis­er. If plan­ning to attend both the sum­mer and Han­mun work­shops, it is nec­es­sary to fill in only one appli­ca­tion, but indi­cate in the appro­pri­ate place that you will be attend­ing both.
