Dear Korean Studies moderator,
Would it be possible to publicise this conference on the Korean Studies
discussion list?

University of Sheffield in the UK will host a one-and-a-half-day symposium
entitled 'Apolitical? East Asian Postage Stamps as Socio-political Artefacts'
and sponsored by the Korea Foundation and the GB Sasakawa Foundation. Political
scientists, anthropolgists, geographers, historians and semiologists from the
UK, Ireland, Sweden, Finland, the US, Japan and Korea will discuss through
illustrated lectures how nationalism, cultural identity and government policies
are reflected in the stamp design of China, Taiwan, Japan, North Korea, South
Korea, and Mongolia.
