The Social Science Research Council’s Korean Studies Workshop for Junior Faculty offers recent recipients of the Ph.D. who are conducting research on Korea an opportunity to give and receive critical feedback on books in progress. Six participants will be selected on the basis of the potential contribution of their proposed books. They will attend a three-day workshop and collaborate with two senior faculty and a developmental editor on the conceptualization and planning of a dissertation-based scholarly monograph.
The 2015 workshop will take place Thursday, August 6, through Monday, August 10, at the University of California at Santa Cruz Conference Center in Santa Cruz, California. Applicants must have had their Ph.D. in hand by December 31, 2014, with a critical mass of their first book manuscript complete (for example, the introduction and two substantive chapters). Applicants in tenure-track positions are particularly encouraged to apply. The deadline for applications is Friday, May 1, 2015.
For the application and more information about requirements, see http://www.ssrc.org/fellowships/ksfacultyworkshop. Funding for the workshop is provided by the Korea Foundation. The workshop will cover the travel costs to Santa Cruz, three nights of accommodations, and meals. Funds are limited for participants traveling to the workshop from overseas.
