Dear friends and colleagues,

A friend who is a priest near Leeds kindly sent me a flyer
on the conference below. I had not heard about this,
so I wonder if others have? 

It may be aimed more towards the faithful than Koreanists -
not that those categories are exclusive. But there are at least
four speakers from Korea, plus others from China, S Africa etc

The contact person is Kathryn Dunn:

Unfortunately I can't make the first link below work.
Others may have better luck.

Welcome to Theology & Religious Studies : 
The International Conference on Peace and Reconciliation

In Search of a Common Identity: The Korean Peninsula and Other Contexts

15 - 18 August 2006

Establishing a common identity is an important part of any process of 
reconciliation. In the case of reconciliation between North and South Korea, this is 
particularly pertinent. The nature of the conference is interdisciplinary but 
perspectives from theology and religious studies will be particularly to the 
fore. Although the focus of the conference is on the Korean peninsula, relevant 
research on the topic of peace and reconciliation in other contexts will 
bring a most welcome contribution to the discussion.
