The Sixth North American Workshop on Korean Literature: NAOKOL 2013 will be held at Columbia University November 15, 2013, sponsored by the Literature Translation Institute of Korea and the Center for Korean Research and Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures, Columbia University.
Submissions are invited from those working in any discipline or field (for example, history, literature, film, queer studies, anthropology, Asian American studies, communications, visual culture) who are incorporating Korean literature and/or film from any period into their work in a significant way.
Among the aims of NAOKOL are to share ongoing projects with colleagues working in the field and to widely promote Korean literary and film studies. Submissions are welcome from scholars at any stage of their careers who are interested in presenting portions of their dissertations or book projects for discussion at the workshop. ABDs and junior scholars are particularly encouraged to apply.
Those interested in presenting their work at the workshop should send a 300-word abstract and short curriculum vitae to Prof. Theodore Hughes at email@example.com. Travel and accommodation expenses will be defrayed to the greatest extent possible. The deadline for submissions is July 31, 2013.
