Call for Papers: UCLA 2014 Im Conference of Korean Christianity
The UCLA Center for Korean Christianity is pleased to announce that the 2014 Im Conference of Korean Christianity will be held at the Center on Friday October 24, 2014 .
The conference aims to give professors and scholars in all Korea-related and world-Christianity fields an opportunity to present their researches on Korean Christianity, especially on the topics related to “Colonialism, Modernity, and Christianity, 1910-1945.”
The papers dealing with the following issues during the colonial period are to be welcomed—Protestantism and colonial modernity, Roman Catholicism and modernity, Christian internationalism, Christian resistance and nationalism, Pro-Japanese collaborators, colonialism and Christian education, and the colonial medical hegemony and Christian medical work.
The conference is open to doctoral students, postdocs, and junior professors. It is also open to all applicants, but preference will be given to those who are in the US.
Airfare (round trip), accommodations (a single room, 2 nights), and local transportation fee (shuttles from home to airport and LAX to UCLA) will be funded to all accepted participants.
All presenters will have a 40-minute talk and 15 minute-discussion session at the conference. All participants need to submit their revised full paper by September 30, 2014.
