The Korea University Korean History (KUKH) Graduate Student Conference invites graduate students from around the world who are conducting research in Korean history to submit abstracts for its 2015 conference. The KUKH Graduate Student Conference is an annual conference that provides a forum for graduate students to exchange ideas and discuss current research on Korean history. The one-day conference on Korea University’s Anam campus in Seoul will take place May 1, 2015. All panels will be moderated by Korea University faculty and graduate students.
The special theme of the 2015 conference is “Incorporating Different Perspectives on Korean History.” Papers may focus on any historical time period. Although broad, the theme was selected to encourage graduate students studying abroad to include innovative interpretations, new perspectives, and fresh approaches to Korean history. The May 2014 conference hosted eight graduate student presenters from five countries and eight educational institutions.
