The Kyujanggak Institute for Korean Studies has announced plans for the fourth Kyujanggak International Symposium on Korean Studies, to be held August 25 – 26, 2011, at Kyujanggak, Seoul National University. The conference theme is “The Project of Modernization: Reconsidering the Capitalist and Socialist Roads, 1945 – 1970s” (ê·¼ëŒ€í™” í”„ë¡œì íŠ¸: ìžë³¸ì£¼ì˜ì˜ ê¸¸, ì‚¬íšŒì£¼ì˜ì˜ ê¸¸).
The plenary panel of the symposium will be devoted to the main conference theme, but proposals are invited for the remaining panels, either on the conference theme or on other critical issues in Korean studies. Panels can be conducted either in English or Korean, or both. Individual paper proposals will be considered, but there is a strong preference for participation in a panel. Panels should consist of four or five presenters, including the chair, and panel organizers are responsible for bringing together all the abstracts and applying.
Panel proposals – including title and short introduction to the panel, together with abstracts of papers and short currricula vitae of the organizer and panelists – should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by February 10, 2011. Panel organizers will be notified by mid-March of the outcome of the selection process. Final papers should be sent by June 30, 2011.
All presenters of selected panels will be reimbursed for their travel to Seoul (up to USD 1500) and will receive free lodging and meals for the duration of the symposium.
