Dear colleagues,

as announced some time ago, the University of Vienna plans to continue a 
tradition originally established at Humboldt University in Berlin. Once a 
year, German-speaking scholars working on Korea met for an exchange of 
ideas, to present their ongoing research, and to consolidate professional 
and personal relations. The meetings, called Korea Study Days 
(Koreawissenschaftliche Tage), were of a very informal character, allowing 
for a kind of academic dialogue that is difficult to establish at a major 

The first Korea Study Days at the University of Vienna will be held on 
November 25th and 26th, 2005, at the East Asian Institute. The organizers 
are Ruediger Frank, Professor of East Asian Political Economy, and Rainer 
Dormels, Professor of Koreanology. As in Berlin, participants are asked to 
make all necessary arrangements for travel and accommodation themselves. 
There is no funding available, although we plan to apply for some financial 
support for meals etc.

The language of the meeting will be German. Our targeted audience are 
colleagues from Austria, Germany and Switzerland, but all other 
German-speaking colleagues wishing to participate are more than welcome.

If you are interested, please send a note to Ms. Choi 
(koreanologie.ostasien at univie.ac.at), indicating if you wish to make a 
presentation and, if so, including the title of your paper. The deadline 
for registration is July 1st, 2005.

I am hoping to hear from you soon and look forward to meeting you in Vienna.

Best regards,

Ruediger Frank
