The Korean Studies Graduate Students Convention (KSGSC) in Europe committee has announced the 8th convention for graduate students. The convention will take place at Maison de lâ€™Asie, Paris, September 13 – 15, 2011, and will be hosted by the Centre de Recherches sur la CorÃ©e (EHESS), the Centre dâ€™Ã‰tudes CorÃ©ennes (INALCO), and the Korean Section of the INALCO.
The conference aims to give graduate students in all Korea-related fields an opportunity to present their research, share academic interests, and strengthen ties with other junior scholars. The convention is organized by the KSGSC committee and is funded by the Korea Foundation, under the umbrella of the Association for Korean Studies in Europe (AKSE).
The convention is open to participation by M.A. students, Ph.D. students, and post-docs who have received their Ph.D. in the last two years. It is open to applicants from outside Europe, but preference in the selection process will be given to students studying at European universities.
Accommodations (twin room) and meals will be provided to all accepted participants. Accepted participants from within Europe (i.e., who are based at a university in Europe) will be offered a transport grant of approximately 120 Euros.
All successful applicants will be expected to give a thirty-minute presentation (twenty minutes presentation plus ten minutes Q&A). All participants will have to submit their full paper (5 – 7 pages) by July 1, 2011.
Applicants should submit the following information by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org:
- Full name as it should in the abstract booklet
- Contact information (e-mail and telephone)
- Major area of study (region and discipline)
- Title of paper
- One-page (500 words maximum) abstract in print-ready format, including author’s name and institution.
The deadline for applications is April 1, 2011. Applicants will be contacted by the end of April regarding the acceptance of applications.
The organizers will appreciate receiving applications only from those who are definitely able to attend the convention. Applicants who confirm and then later cancel their participation potentially deprive others of the chance of attending and lead to waste of KSGSC resources.
