9th Kyujanggak Korean Studies Summer Workshop

KyujanggakThe Kyu­jang­gak Insti­tute of Kore­an Stud­ies will host its ninth sum­mer work­shop for Kore­an stud­ies June 29 to July 10, 2015, at the Kyu­jang­gak Insti­tute for Kore­an Stud­ies at Seoul Nation­al Uni­ver­si­ty. The work­shop aims to give grad­u­ate stu­dents in Kore­an stud­ies and Korea-relat­ed sub­jects the oppor­tu­ni­ty to fur­ther their under­stand­ing of research trends in var­i­ous fields.

Morn­ing lec­tures will cov­er research meth­ods, trends, and approach­es in ten dif­fer­ent fields: his­to­ry of sci­ence, old doc­u­ments, archi­tec­ture, anthro­pol­o­gy, reli­gion, art, pol­i­tics, his­to­ry, mod­ern lit­er­a­ture, and law. All class­es and dis­cus­sions will take place in Kore­an. In the after­noon, stu­dents can either take an intro­duc­to­ry class for read­ing clas­si­cal Kore­an texts com­posed in Han­mun or join a four-week inten­sive advanced Han­mun class. The course reg­is­tra­tion fee is US$500, but stu­dents can obtain a fee-waiv­ing grant, as well as trav­el sup­port.

To apply, com­plete the online appli­ca­tion at http://icks.snu.ac.kr/page/index.jsp?code=summer_en begin­ning Feb­ru­ary 23 and pro­vide a ref­er­ence let­ter from an aca­d­e­m­ic advi­sor. If you are plan­ning to attend both the sum­mer school and the Han­mun work­shop, you need to file only one appli­ca­tion, but indi­cate in the appro­pri­ate place that you will be attend­ing both.
