The Kyujanggak Institute for Korean Studies at Seoul National University will hold its second one-month intensive Hanmun workshop this summer. The workshop is aimed at graduate students or advanced undergraduate students who have completed at least one year of classes in classical Chinese and who are interested in improving comprehension by reading original texts. The workshop will run from June 30 to July 24, 2014 (four weeks).
Seminars will take place each week from Monday to Thursday and last 2.5 hours each; the seminars will be conducted mainly by discussing students’ translations of assigned texts. Therefore, apart from class time, students will spend at least 10 hours a week preparing translations.
Because classes will be conducted in Korean, students should possess at least intermediate knowledge of Korean. Students will also need to provide clear evidence of basic Hanmun ability, preferably through a reference letter from an academic advisor or Hanmun instructor.
The course registration fee is US$500, but students can obtain a fee-waiver grant as well as travel support. To apply, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for application forms and further details. Also see the Web site at http://plaza6.snu.ac.kr/~icks/ for further information. Applications are due by March 16, 2014.
