Can you please forward the announcement of a new and important initiative by SSRC and Korea Foundation? Thank you. JJ

The Social Science Research Council (SSRC) and the Korea Foundation are pleased to announce the creation of the Korean Studies Dissertation Workshop.  This annual event aims to foster a sustained network of advanced graduate students and faculty engaged in research on Korea.  The four-day workshop provides an informal setting for participants to give and receive critical feedback on dissertations in progress.  Applications are welcome from students in all fields of the social sciences and humanities who have not yet begun field work, who are currently in the field, and those who are in the process of writing their dissertations.  Full-time advanced graduate students, regardless of citizenship, who are enrolled at U.S. or Canadian institutions and have an approved dissertation prospectus are eligible.  The 2008 workshop will take place Sunday, July 13 through Thursday, July 17 at the Asilomar Conference Grounds in Pacific Grove, California, and will involve twelve students and five faculty.

Applications are due by May 1, 2008.
