The Department of Asian Studies at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem invites proposals for presentation at a conference titled “Korean Diaspora and the Arts.” The conference will take place at the Harry S. Truman Institute for the Advancement of Peace at The Hebrew University May 21–23, 2017.
This conference aims to bring together innovative approaches that will deepen understanding of the historical, cultural, and political experiences of Korean diasporic individuals and communities as reflected in creative works.
The conference organizers solicit individual papers and panel proposals that examine representations of the Korean diaspora in creative works and that investigate lives and philosophies of diasporic artists in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Papers that contain innovative theoretical, historical, and sociological approaches to the Korean diaspora are also welcome.
Individual abstracts and panel proposals (with abstracts for each of the panelists) should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by January 30, 2017. Successful applicants will be notified by February 28, 2017, and asked to send their working papers (3,000–4,000 words) at least two weeks prior to the conference.
