The Kyujanggak Institute for Korean Studies will host its 5th Summer Workshop from July 4 to July 16, 2011. The workshop presents an opportunity for graduate students and junior scholars to gain exposure to diverse disciplines and scholars of Korean studies and to network with future colleagues.
The workshop will focus on research methodologies and issues in Korean studies through the examination of documentary and digital resources. The two-week comprehensive program consists of lectures and seminar discussions on subjects such as art, classical and contemporary literature, premodern and modern history, architecture, and religion.
All lectures and seminars will be conducted in Korean, and reading material and handouts as well will be mostly in Korean. Participants will have a chance to present their research plans or preliminary findings at an informal presentation session and will be able to consult with the lecturers on their research. Several short field trips and visits will also be organized.
The registration fee for the workshop is US$500; a limited number of fee waiver grants and travel grants are available. The application deadline is February 28, 2011. Acceptance announcements will be made March 31, 2011. The final registration deadline is April 30, 2011.
