Dear List Members:

Just in case you might be in the Washington, DC, Metropolitan area at the end 
of October, I should like to invite you to our next annual Colloquium in the 
Korean Humanities at The George Washington University.  A press release

Young-Key Kim-Renaud

"Creation and Re-Creation: Modern Korean Fiction and Its Translation"

EVENT: The George Washington University's Hahn Moo-Sook (HMS) 
Colloquium series in the Korean Humanities is holding its 6th annual 
meeting on Saturday, October 30, 1999. Internationally known Korean 
authors, Pak Wan-so and Choe In-ho, talk about their creative efforts. 
Two of their translators, Bruce Fulton and Yu Young-nan, discuss issues 
that arise in translating literary works into another language. A panel of 
four GW professors, Peter Caws, Jonathan Chaves, Alf Hiltebeitel, and 
Kim-Renaud, who have been active as translators and/or researchers on 
translation theory, will make commentaries. Colloquium participants will 
have a chance to reflect on how a culture-specific experience and 
aesthetic sense may be conveyed to the audience of different linguistic 
and cultural backgrounds.

WHEN: Saturday, October 30 (9:45 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.) 
A Korean buffet lunch is served. Book sale and signing will take place during 
lunch hour.

Required due to limited space.


The HMS Colloquium in the Korean Humanities Series at GW provides a forum 
for academic discussion of Korean arts, history, language, literature, thought 
and religious systems in the context of East Asia and the world.  The 
Colloquium series is made possible by an endowment established by the estate 
Hahn Moo-Sook, one of Korea's most honored writers, in order to uphold 
her spirit of openness, curiosity, and education. This year's colloquium is 
co-sponsored by GW's Sigur Center for Asian Studies and The Korea Society.
