When: July 12-16, 2009
Where: Pacific Grove, CA – Asilomar Conference Center
Application Deadline: May 1, 2009
The SSRC Korean Studies Dissertation Workshop seeks to create a sustained network of advanced graduate students and faculty engaged in research on Korea. The four-day workshop provides an informal setting for participants to give and receive critical feedback on dissertations in progress.
Individual students will lead discussions of their projects with mentor faculty and peers from various disciplines to receive creative and critical input on improving their fieldwork plans or writing strategies. The mentor faculty are Nancy Abelmann (University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign); Kyeong-Hee Choi (University of Chicago); Bruce Cumings (University of Chicago); John Duncan (University of California, Los Angeles); and Jae-Jung Suh (Johns Hopkins University).
• Only full-time advanced graduate students, regardless of citizenship, who are enrolled at US or Canadian institutions are eligible.
• Participants may be in any social science or humanities field.
• Applicants must have an approved dissertation prospectus but cannot have completed writing for final submission.
• Special consideration will be given to students from universities that are not major Korean Studies institutions.
