Dear Colleagues,

I am contacting Korean specialists to draw attention to the annual meeting
of the Western Conference of the Association for Asian Studies (WCAAS),
which will be hosted by Arizona State University from October 9th to 11th.
As the conference chair and a Koreanist, I would like to boost the number of
presentations about Korea. As you know, Korea panels have not been as well
represented as we would like, and this has been particularly true in AAS
regional conferences.  I am hoping that there will be many more papers on
Korea at the 2003 WCAAS so that Korean studies as a field will be well
represented.  Toward this end, I would like to ask you to consider
presenting a paper or organizing a panel and/or encourage your graduate
students to do so. For graduate students, we may be able to offer some small
travel grants on a competitive basis. More detailed information about this
conference, including the "call for papers" and proposal forms, is available
at our website, <http://www.asu.edu/wcaas2003>. Proposals are due by June
15, 2003.  

I would greatly appreciate it if you would consider presenting a paper and
spreading the word about the conference to your colleagues and students.
Thanks much for your attention.
