Call for Papers: Korea University Korean History Graduate Student Conference

Korea University logoThe 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.
