Conference Announcement and Call for Papers
The British Association for Korean Studies announces the hosting of its
2006 Conference from Wednesday 6 September to Thursday 7 September, 2006
at Halifax Hall at the University of Sheffield.

The Theme of the Conference will be 'Generations in Korea: Past, Present
and Future'.
In the last century Korea has undergone several major social, economic and
political transformations. Born and schooled in a country occupied by the
Japanese, the average seventy five year old citizen has experienced two 
major wars, the partition of Korea into ideologically opposed states, the 
emergence of democracy, industrialisation, urbanisation, and the eventual 
development of their nation into a major economic power. This conference seeks
papers that explore aspects of the ‘lived lives and experiences’ of this
generation and their relationships with those that preceded or followed them.
Students and scholars interested in presenting a paper at the Conference
should submit a 250- to 500-word abstract to the Conference Organiser,
Prof. James H. Grayson at j.h.grayson at sheffield.ac.uk no later than 1
June, 2006. The Conference Committee will notify selected presenters
within a fortnight of the submission date. If presenters intend to use
data projected materials, an attachment should be included along with
the proposal.
Anyone interested in attending the Conference should contact Prof. James H.
Grayson at j.h.grayson at shef.ac.uk for details of the conference and
procedures for applying to attend. Applications to attend the
Conference must be received by the Conference Organiser no later than
Monday 21 August, 2006.
