6th Kyujanggak Hanmun Workshop

Hanmun workshop text exampleThe Kyu­jang­gak Insti­tute for Kore­an Stud­ies will present its 6th Han­mun work­shop June 25 to July 13, 2018. This work­shop is intend­ed for grad­u­ate stu­dents (M.A. or Ph.D.) or advanced under­grad­u­ate stu­dents who have com­plet­ed at least one year of clas­si­cal Chi­nese train­ing and are inter­est­ed in improv­ing their read­ing com­pre­hen­sion of a wide range of orig­i­nal texts. Since class­es will be con­duct­ed in Kore­an, stu­dents should also have at least intermediate-level pro­fi­cien­cy in Kore­an.

Sem­i­nars will take place from Mon­day to Thurs­day and last two and one-half hours each. Select­ed read­ings will be assigned to stu­dents for trans­la­tion, so stu­dents will spend approx­i­mate­ly 10 hours per week to pre­pare the trans­la­tions.

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 found at http://icks.snu.ac.kr/page/index.jsp?code=hanmun and include a ref­er­ence let­ter from an aca­d­e­m­ic advis­er.

Appli­ca­tions are due by April 30, 2018.
