BAKS bannerThe British Asso­ci­a­tion of Kore­an Stud­ies invites pro­pos­als for papers to be pre­sent­ed at the con­fer­ence “Kore­an Iden­ti­ties in a Glob­al Age,” to be con­vened at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Sheffield Novem­ber 21–23, 2014.

Kore­ans have been promi­nent­ly entwined with and influ­en­tial in glob­al events, and as the cul­tur­al, polit­i­cal, and eco­nom­ic influ­ence of con­tem­po­rary Korea con­tin­ues to grow, this con­fer­ence is intend­ed to dis­cuss the flow of influ­ence in both direc­tions. The con­fer­ence orga­niz­ers invite papers on top­ics relat­ing to glob­al and region­al con­nec­tions, both his­tor­i­cal and in the con­tem­po­rary world. They seek papers on the inter­ac­tions with and trans­mis­sion of Kore­an cul­ture rang­ing from ancient to mod­ern times.
