Korea's Place in the World: Now and Twenty Years Hence


What is the future for the Korean peninsula, north and south, in the 
world of 2032? What are some major drivers of change that will create 
the Korea of 2032? What are possible scenarios for urbanisation and 
Korean cities? How will an immersive digital environment affect Korean 
culture and economy? What will the grey shift mean for Korean society 
and infrastructure in 2032?

The British Association for Korean Studies will hold a Workshop at the 
School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London, on 17 
November 2012 on the topic of 'Korea's Place in the World: Now and 
Twenty Years Hence'. We invite paper presenters to turn their expertise 
to the future, particularly in the fields of urbanisation, demography, 
and the digital revolution, and consider Korea as a case study. We will 
favour proposals that address the impact of technology on society and 
social change, and papers from post-graduate students are particularly 
welcome. All full papers submitted will be considered for publication in 
the Papers of the British Association for Korean Studies, after a peer 

*Deadline for abstracts: 1 September 2012
Deadline for full papers: 1 November 2012 (for those with an intention 
towards publication in BAKS Papers)
