The Korean Studies unit at the Department of Cross-Cultural and Regional Studies, University of Copenhagen, has announced plans for the 4th Korean Screen Culture Conference, to be hosted by the Department of Cross-Cultural and Regional Studies in collaboration with the Korea Foundation May 29–30 2015.
The conference aims to examine critically some of the most important issues affecting Korean screen culture, particularly cinema, television, and music videos.
Proposals are invited for papers and panels on all aspects of Korean screen culture, South and North Korean cinema past and present, video games, production, distribution and reception of film, television, K-pop music videos, and the transnational and transmedia aspects in Korean screen culture such as the impacts of the Korean Wave (Hallyu), transnational adaptations, co-productions, collaborations, and various transmedia practices.
Papers on other forms of Korean screen culture will also be considered.
Proposals (for individual papers as well as panel proposals) should include name, institutional affiliation, title of the paper, an abstract of 400 words, and a 50–100-word biography of the author. Send these as a Microsoft WORD file–no PDFs–by February 28, 2015, to Andrew David Jackson at firstname.lastname@example.org. Use the file-naming convention: LastnameNameKSC15.doc (e.g., SmithJaneKSC15.doc).
All applicants will receive an e-mail confirmation of the receipt of their abstract within a week of submission. Successful applicants will be notified by mid-March and will be required to send the complete paper of 5,500 to 6,000 words by April 30, 2015.
