Call for Papers
The Worldwide Consortium of Korean Studies Centers is accepting proposals for papers by graduate students for its Sixth International Workshop on Korean Studies. The workshop, centered on the theme “Re-visioning Korean History from a Long-term and Large-scale Perspective,” will be held June 29–July 2, 2010, at the Institute of Korean Studies (Director, Young Seo Baik), Yonsei University in Seoul, Korea. 
The Worldwide Consortium of Korean Studies Centers workshops are designed to provide a forum for graduate students in Korean studies to share their research in a supportive and encouraging environment and to promote scholarly interest in Korea around the globe. 
Participating graduate students will give presentations on topics of their choice and will be assigned to one of several main workshop panels, or to the special session panel, depending on the nature of their proposals. Panels will be organized by theme or methodology and will be chaired by established academics drawn from the East Asian region and from Consortium member universities. The panels, including one special session, will be followed by workshops during which the academics will discuss the papers presented, commenting on disciplinary and methodological issues and recommending ways in which the papers can be improved for publication. An opening of the floor to general discussion will follow. 
Twelve graduate students will be chosen through open competition to present papers. Twelve additional graduate students nominated by Consortium member universities will also be selected to participate. Any graduate student specializing in Korean studies, including those enrolled in non-Consortium institutions, may apply for an invitation to the workshop. Preference will be given to students enrolled in doctoral programs. 
Graduate students from institutions outside Korea selected to take part in the workshop will be eligible for funding assistance. This assistance will cover accommodations and meals during the workshop, as well as a travel expenses up to $ 500 for participants departing from an Asian locale and up to $ 1500 for those from Europe, Australia, and North and South America. Please note that workshop participants’ accommodation schedules should closely follow the arrangements made by the host institution.
