The Korean Studies Institute is going to hold our second annual graduate student symposium on January 23, 2014. The symposium will be a wonderful opportunity for graduate students to present their original research on all aspects of East Asia, become familiar with other graduate studentsí work, and create interdisciplinary networks of Ph.D. students studying East Asia among universities in Southern California. Meanwhile, we will have Kelly Jeong, an associate professor of comparative literature at UC Riverside as our featured speaker.
To achieve an interdisciplinary mix of research papers from both the social sciences and humanities, we consider research papers on any part of East Asia. Particularly encouraged are research papers that include Korea in a larger comparative or theoretical framework. We also encourage graduate students to indicate their willingness to serve as a discussant. Deadline for abstracts and request to be a discussant is September 27, 2013 (See attached for details).
