The Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures and Graduates Studying East Asia at the University of Southern California invite graduate students conducting research in all disciplines related to East Asia to submit abstracts for their 2018 graduate student symposium, “Resistance Reimagined.”
This conference, on September 29, 2018, aims to investigate and formulate new theorizations of resistance as well as rethink how communities and individuals construct narratives to reimagine social and political changes in the context of East Asia.
The topic can be interpreted widely in relation to various fields, including but not limited to cinema and media studies, gender studies, history, linguistics, literature, religion, and visual studies.
Submissions are welcome from graduate students in all disciplines. Papers should be related to East Asia, including East Asian interactions with the wider world.
Applicants should submit an abstract (maximum 250 words) and a short biography (maxmaximum 150 words) to email@example.com by May 1, 2018 (5:00 p.m. PST).
The Kyujanggak Institute for Korean Studies will hold its 11th annual Symposium on Korean Studies on August 23 and 24, 2018. The Symposium brings together five or six panels of scholars from across the globe for presentation of in-depth research on Korean studies. The theme for this year’s Symposium is “Conflict, Reconciliation, and Records.”
Technically still at war, the Korean peninsula has often been the stage for war, rebellion, and conflict. This conference will look especially at how Koreans have tried to make sense of these conflicts and how they have sought to reestablish peace or international relations in the aftermath of these conflicts.
Symposium organizers encourage, in particular, panels that look at the records of conflict: war novels, diplomatic negotiation, or reminiscences. While conflict itself has received substantial attention from researchers, the reconciliation or processing of conflict has received much less attention, and this is what the symposium aims to address.
The Academy of Korean Studies will host the 9th World Congress of Korean Studies at the Academy September 12th to 14th, 2018. The Congress theme is “Human Civilizations and Korean Studies.” The organizers invite prospective participants to submit proposals for both individual presentations and panels.
Panel proposals should include three or four presenters for a ninety-minute program. The panel organizer should submit a one-page proposal; one-page abstract for each presenter’s paper; and a curriculum vitae for each presenter.
The organizing committee will assign individual papers to panels of three or four presenters per panel. Individual proposals should include a one-page abstract of the paper and the presenter’s curriculum vitae.
To submit a proposal, sign up at the World Congress of Korean Studies Web site (http://congress.aks.ac.kr), select Call for Abstracts, and submit the required documents (Microsoft Word files only). The application deadline is April 27, 2018.
The Congress organizing committee consists of Young-kyun Yang (Chair/Academy of Korean Studies); Jae Hoon Yeon (International Society for Korean Studies/SOAS, University of London); Jo Elfving-Hwang (Korean Studies Association of Australasia/University of Western Australia); Sunyoung Park (Committee on Korean Studies, Association for Asian Studies/University of Southern California ); James B. Lewis (Association for Korean Studies in Europe/University of Oxford); and Jeongsoo Shin (Academy of Korean Studies).
Korean Studies, the journal of the University of Hawai’i Center for Korean Studies, furthers scholarship on Korea by providing a forum for discourse on timely subjects and addresses a variety of scholarly topics through interdisciplinary and multicultural articles, book reviews, and essays in the humanities and social sciences. All scholarly articles on Korea and the Korean community abroad are welcomed, including topics of interest to the specialist and non-specialist alike.
The journal publishes new research, review articles, and book reviews about various topics within the field of Korean studies. All articles are printed in English, and all submissions must be in English. All manuscripts should be submitted with text formatted in Times New Roman, 12-point font, single-spaced, with one-inch margins, and pages numbered. Korean transliteration should conform to the McCune-Reischauer system, with the exception that the Yale romanization system may be used in linguistics articles. Original Asian characters may be included in parentheses (e.g., Korean, Chinese, Japanese) for words whose meanings may not be clear when translated into English.
Korean Studies publishes regular research articles (10,000-word limit), news and viewpoint pieces (2,000-word limit), and book reviews (1,000-word limit). Research articles may present new research findings or review current debates in a specific field. News and viewpoint pieces may take the form of responses to previously published works, either in Korean Studies or another venue. However, note that original authors will have the opportunity to review response pieces and respond with formal replies.
Once a manuscript is formally accepted each manuscript will proceed through copy-editing. Once copy-editing is completed every manuscript will be uploaded to the Advance Publication site as a paper formally “In Press” [with associated DOI (Digital Object Identifier)]. It is then downloadable and citable. Formal publication in an issue of the journal, including publication year, volume and page numbers, will occur when the editor has a sufficient number of papers to complete an issue. Once all papers are accepted for an issue the manuscripts are compiled and the production process is completed, at which time the issue will be published online and in print.
