The Social Science Research Council Korean Studies Dissertation Workshop seeks to create 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.


Individual students will lead discussions of their projects with mentor faculty and peers from various disciplines to receive creative and critical input on improving their fieldwork plans or writing strategies. This year's mentor faculty include Nancy Abelmann (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign), Suk-young Kim (University of California, Santa Barbara), and Jun Yoo (University of Hawaii at Manoa). An additional mentor will be drawn from the sociology or political science fields.


. Only full-time advanced graduate students, regardless of citizenship, who are enrolled at US or Canadian institutions are eligible.

. Participants may be in any social science or humanities field.

. Applicants must have an approved dissertation prospectus but cannot have completed writing for final submission.

. Special consideration will be given to students from universities that are not major Korean Studies institutions.
