The British Association of Korean Studies invites proposals for papers to be presented at the conference “Korean Identities in a Global Age,” to be convened at the University of Sheffield November 21 – 23, 2014.
Koreans have been prominently entwined with and influential in global events, and as the cultural, political, and economic influence of contemporary Korea continues to grow, this conference is intended to discuss the flow of influence in both directions. The conference organizers invite papers on topics relating to global and regional connections, both historical and in the contemporary world. They seek papers on the interactions with and transmission of Korean culture ranging from ancient to modern times.
The deadline for submission of abstracts (up to 1,000 words) is August 1, 2014. Notice of acceptance will be issued September 1, 2014. Abstracts should be sent to James B. Lewis (firstname.lastname@example.org) in Microsoft Word or PDF format. Abstracts should include the proposer’s contact details and current status or position (e.g., independent scholar, student, broadcaster, artist, academic).
