The Australian National University will host the biennial conference of the Korean Studies Association of Australasia June 27 – 28, 2013. The conference program committee invites Ph.D. students, early career researchers, and academic colleagues to present their research. Proposals from all disciplines on any topic are welcome, but organizers particularly welcome research that addresses Korea’s engagement with the southern hemisphere.
Organized panels are preferred, but individual papers are also welcome. Panels that combine presentations by Ph.D. students and academics are especially encouraged. Panel proposals should have a general abstract for the panel (<250 words), plus abstracts for each of the individual papers (<250 words).
Suggestions for innovative roundtables are also invited. Roundtables may be organized around a theme, discipline, policy or research question, or could be focused on discussion of an important book in the field. Roundtables may feature up to five speakers, and no fewer than three.
Applications must be submitted by February 15, 2013. Application forms can be found at the KSAA Web site: http://koreanstudiesaa.wordpress.com/.
All submissions and inquiries should be sent via e-mail to korea@añu.edu.au. Current postgraduate students applying for the conference need to attach a letter of reference from a supervisor.
Successful applicants will be provided with accommodations for three nights. Meals will be provided during the conference. Conference participants will be responsible for the planning and cost of their own travel arrangements.
