Academic Discussion Lists
• Korean Studies Internet Discussion List
In 1994 Rob Provine established an e-mail Korean Studies discussion list
under the name "korean-studies" for the purpose of keeping the
often isolated members of the Korean Studies community in touch with each
other and in fruitful communication. Later he was joined by other moderators and list co-owners. The list, which is hosted on this website, has now over 1,000 subscribers and is an avenue for publication and conference announcements, job postings, and of course academic discussions that cover the entire field of Koren Studies. An associated online book review journal, Korean Studies Review (1995-2008), has now been discontinued.
List Archives are searchable from the main
Web interface; since late 2011 the archives are also accessible in forum format.
