Eligible topics include:
• Korean religions in North or South America (e.g., Korean Buddhism, Christianity, or new religions in North or South America) • North or South Americans’ involvement in the religions of Korea (e.g., Canadian Presbyterian missionaries in Korea or European-American Sŏn [Zen] priests in Korea) • Trans-Pacific aspects of Korean religions with respect to rituals, ethics, myths, doctrines, experience, or materiality

Eligible topics include:
