The University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and Indiana University Title VI National Resource Center Consortium (IL/IN NRC Consortium) announces a summer dissertation workshop in the field of Korean Culture and Society and invites applications from doctoral students whose dissertations focus on some aspect of Korean society and culture. 

This workshop is designed to enable students just beginning to write or those who are more advanced in their writing to engage in intensive discussions with faculty and each other. Possibilities for creating continuing networks among interested students and faculty will also be explored. Each student will be given time to present a chapter from his/her work in progress, and faculty members will then respond to the presentation. 

The workshop will begin after breakfast on Thursday, July 30 and conclude at noon on Friday, July 31. Eight students will be selected for participation, and they will be mentored at the workshop by three faculty from the Consortium universities: Dr. Nancy Abelmann, Professor, Anthropology and EALC, University of Illinois; Dr. Shin-Kap Han, Associate Professor, Sociology, University of Illinois; and Dr. Michael Robinson, Professor, EALC, Indiana University. 

All application materials must be received by Friday, May 29, 2009. The application consists of two items: 1) a current CV, and 2) an 8-10 page double-spaced dissertation proposal or an 8-10 page excerpt from the dissertation in progress. Participants will be selected on the basis of their submitted materials and the potential for useful exchanges among them. Successful candidates will be notified by June 12, and will submit the chapter or other excerpt to be examined at the Workshop no later than Monday, July 6. The Consortium will cover housing for two nights (July 29-30) and meals. 

Application materials should be submitted electronically to:
