SSRC 2017 Korean Studies Dissertation Workshop Scheduled for August


SSRC dissertation workshop
The 2017 Social Sci­ence Research Coun­cil (SSRC) Kore­an Stud­ies Dis­ser­ta­tion Work­shop will take place August 11 – 15 at the Hilton Westch­ester in Rye Brook, New York. The work­shop is intend­ed to cre­ate a net­work of advanced grad­u­ate stu­dents and fac­ul­ty by pro­vid­ing an oppor­tu­ni­ty for exchange of crit­i­cal feed­back on dis­ser­ta­tions in progress. Twelve stu­dents will be select­ed to work with three fac­ul­ty mem­bers dur­ing the program.

The work­shop invites appli­ca­tions from stu­dents in all fields in the social sci­ences and human­i­ties who have not yet begun field­work, who are cur­rent­ly in the field, or who are in the process of writ­ing their dissertations. 

Full-time advanced grad­u­ate stu­dents, regard­less of cit­i­zen­ship, are eli­gi­ble to par­tic­i­pate in the work­shop. Appli­cants must have ABD (all but dis­ser­ta­tion) sta­tus and an approved dis­ser­ta­tion prospec­tus at the time of appli­ca­tion, but can­not have com­plet­ed writ­ing for final sub­mis­sion. Spe­cial con­sid­er­a­tion will be giv­en to stu­dents from uni­ver­si­ties that are not major Kore­an stud­ies insti­tu­tions. The dead­line for appli­ca­tions is June 15, 2017.

This year’s fac­ul­ty men­tors are Suzy Kim of Rut­gers Uni­ver­si­ty; Robert Oppen­heim of the Uni­ver­si­ty of Texas, Austin; and Youngju Ryu of the Uni­ver­si­ty of Michi­gan, Ann Arbor.

To the extent its bud­get allows, SSRC will cov­er all trav­el to the work­shop and will ful­ly cov­er par­tic­i­pants’ lodg­ing and meals for the dura­tion of the work­shop. The Acad­e­my of Kore­an Stud­ies is pro­vid­ing fund­ing for the program.
