*The 20th annual HMS Colloquium celebrates a century of Modern Korean
Literature. Distinguished scholars and prize-winning authors will
discuss Korean literature that has flourished through the tumultuous
history of modern Korea. The highlight of this year's event is a dialog
between literary scholars, prominent authors, and the Washington audience.
On the eve of the Colloquium, the Korean authors will speak at a special
event provided at the Korean Cultural Center of the Korean Embassy.*


The HMS Colloquium series provides a forum for academic discussion of
Korean humanities in the context of East Asia and the world. The series was
created by an endowment established by the estate of Hahn Moo-Sook, one of
Korea’s most honored writers, to uphold her spirit of openness, curiosity
and commitment to education. The 20th HMS colloquium is co-organized with
the Literature Translation Institute of Korea and co-sponsored by GW’s
Columbian College of Arts and Sciences, Department of East Asian Languages
and Literatures, Sigur Center for Asian Studies, Institute for Ethnographic
Research, and the Korean Cultural Center of the Korean Embassy.

Korean lunch is served. This event is free and open to the public. However,
reservations are required. Please *RSVP* with your name, affiliation,
address, and phone number to kimrenau at gwu.edu or (202) 994-7107.
