From June 25 to July 6, 2018, the Kyujanggak Institute for Korean Studies will conduct its 12th summer workshop for Korean studies. The program is intended for graduate students (M.A. and Ph.D.) of all disciplines of Korean studies and offers an opportunity to interact with Korean studies faculty at Seoul National University. The program intends to familiarize students with the latest research trends in a wide variety of fields and to acquaint them with leading scholarship in the Korean language.
Morning lectures consist of exposition of methods and trends in various fields, including history, architecture, anthropology, religion, arts, politics, and literature. On the last day, students will have an opportunity to present their research projects and share initial findings. Classes are conducted in Korean, and discussion will also take place in Korean, but the level will be adjusted with the students in mind.
In the afternoon students can either take part in the Hanmun workshop or use the facilities of Seoul National University for self-study or research.
The course registration fee is US$500, but students can apply for a fee-waiving grant as well as travel support. Lunches are provided at no cost at one of the campus restaurants.
To apply, complete the on-line application, including a reference letter from an academic adviser. If planning to attend both the summer and Hanmun workshops, it is necessary to fill in only one application, but indicate in the appropriate place that you will be attending both.
The on-line application form and additional information about the program can be found at http://icks.snu.ac.kr/page/index.jsp?code=summer_en. The deadline for applications is April 30, 2018.
