Prospective participants are invited to submit panel proposals and individual paper abstracts for presentation at the 7th World Congress of Korean Studies. The Congress will be held at the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa in Honolulu November 5–7, 2014.
The conference theme is “Korean Studies, a New Perspective toward Global Humanities.” Those who wish to participate are invited to submit abstracts on the widest variety of topics that correspond to the conference objectives.
Panel proposals should include a one-page proposal for the entire panel, a curriculum vitae of less than one page for each participant, and an abstract of less than one page for each individual presentation on the panel.
Individual paper proposals require submission of an abstract and a curriculum vitae electronically. Abstracts cannot exceed one page (A4 size, 12 point) in English or Korean. Those accepted will be organized into panels of three individual speakers. A person may serve in multiple roles such as moderator, presenter, and discussant.
To apply to participate, sign up, complete an application form, and attach a curriculum vitae and abstract (Microsoft Word file only) at the Congress homepage (http://congress.aks.ac.kr) between March 10 and May 9, 2014. Abstracts will be peer-reviewed, and those accepted will be notified directly in July. The deadline for conference registration is July 31. Full papers (10–15 pages) must be submitted by September 30, 2014.
The conference registration fee is US$100 ($50 for graduate students). The conference will provide lodging and meals for those from outside Hawaii who will be presenting papers at the conference (but not moderators and commentators).
