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.

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).
