We invite submissions from those working in any discipline or field (for example, history, literature, film, queer studies, anthropology, Asian American studies, communications, visual culture) who are incorporating Korean literature and/or film from any period into their work in a significant way for the sixth annual North American Workshop on Korean Literature (NAOKOL) to be held on November 15, 2013 at Columbia University.
Among the aims of NAOKOL are to share ongoing projects with colleagues working in the field and to widely promote Korean literary and film studies. We are seeking submissions by scholars at any stage of their careers--dissertators, junior scholars, senior scholars--who are interested in presenting portions of their dissertations or book projects for discussion at the Workshop. ABD's and junior scholars are particularly encouraged to apply.
Those interested in presenting their work at the Workshop should send a 300 word abstract and short CV to the email address below. As in the past, travel and accommodation expenses will be defrayed to the greatest extent possible. The deadline for submissions is July 31, 2013.
