Dear Madam or Sir,


We would like to ask you for your kind help in distributing this call for
papers for the Korean Studies Graduate Students Convention (KSGSC) 2006 to
as many students/scholars as possible who may be interested in this project.
Thank you very much.  If you have any questions or suggestions, please do
not hesitate to contact us.


ORIENTAL INSTITUTE - in cooperation with Korea Foundation; Charles
University in Prague, Faculty of Philosophy and Arts, Institute of East
Asian Studies, Seminar for Korean studies; Palacký University in Olomouc,
Philosophical Faculty, Department of Asian Studies, and Czech-Korean Society
- is pleased to announce CALL FOR PAPERS  for the KOREAN STUDIES GRADUATE
STUDENTS CONVENTION 2006 in the Czech Republic.


The Korean Studies Graduate Students Convention (KSGSC) is an international
conference for young researchers and students working on topics related to
Korea organised by leading Korean studies institutes in Europe. The third
KSGSC is planned for September this year and will be organised in the "heart
of Europe" by the Oriental Institute, a top Asia-related research
institution in the Czech Republic, in cooperation with other Korean studies
institutions. The convention will be accompanied by a cultural programme
related to Korea and the commemoration of the 55th anniversary of the
establishment of Korean Studies in the Czech Republic (Czechoslovakia). The
KSGSC aims to be an event where graduate students from around Europe can
come together to present their work and share ideas and experiences, and to
induce close cooperation and joint research projects. This year's KSGSC
follows up with two previous international conferences organised in 2004 at
Ruhr Universität, Bochum, and in 2005 at SOAS, London. The event is led by a
motivation to firmly establish the tradition of the European KSGSC, enhance
cooperation among young European researchers in the field, and improve the
level of mutual information exchange. We firmly believe that the regular
KSGSC, as a kind of preparatory convention for young scholars to get first
international experiences before attending biennial AKSE conferences, is an
important event for the stabilisation and the future sustainable development
of Korean studies in Europe. We regard the publishing of the KSGSC
Proceedings, i.e. the best of European student's research results, as an
important part of this effort.
