The 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.
Applications are due by March 15, 2015. Announcement of acceptance will be made March 31. Final registration deadline is April 20, 2015. For further information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
