Overview on the conference

-        Subject: Korea and Korean Studies: Vision from Asia

-        Contents:

We would state that the recent position of Korea in Asia has been remarkably strengthened against the clock. By the increase of trade scale, the expansion of human resources exchange through tourism and study-abroad programs and especially the strengthening of intercultural relations through Hallyu between South Korea and the Asian nations, Korea and Korean culture have been welcomed as a marvelous phenomenon that would be impossible to be anticipated. Currently, Korean culture not only belongs to the Koreans themselves but to all the peoples, in Asia, who love it. In spite of the remarkable positiveness as mentioned above, the major in Korean studies in Asia has just stayed at the rudimentary stage. In the capacity as a synthetic major in Korean history, society and culture, Korean studies in the region is still weak in both quality and quantity while the foundation of Korean studies is being created by the increasing demand of Korean language education. For making the Asian peoples better understand Korea, it is necessary to create a combination of the interest of more Asians, initially with the Hallyu movement, and the development of Korean studies. The conference aims at advancing a multifaceted look on “Korea and Korean Studies: Vision from Asia”. Therefore, the main contents of this conference emphasize on the following specific issues:

+ Korean Culture in the Asian Culture

+ Asian Culture in the Korean Culture

+ Korea and Asia in history: Conflict and Cooperation Experience

+ Korea and Asia in the 21st Century: Issues and Future Prospects

+ Recent Achievements and the Prospects of Korean Studies in Asia
