*_Korea and the Southern Hemisphere_*

The Program Committee for the 2013 Biennial Conference of the Korean 
Studies Association of Australasia invites PhD students, early career 
researchers and academic colleagues to the Australian National 
University to present their research and enhance our understanding of 
Korea in the world today. Proposals from all disciplines on any topic 
are welcome.With a mind to our location in Australasia, we extend a 
particular invitation to research that addresses Korea's engagement with 
the southern hemisphere. Potential topics might include but are not 
limited to:

·Influence of religions in the formation of modern Korea

·The legacy of the Korean War and ANZAC

·Minority communities and multiculturalism

·South Korea and Australia as "Middle Powers"

·History of and prospects for North Korea

·Human rights and NGO activities

·Gender politics in North and South Korea

·Korean creative industries and global markets

*_Panels and Individual Papers_*

Organised panels are preferred, but individual papers are welcome as 
well. Panels that combine presentations by PhD students together with 
academics are especially encouraged. Panel proposals should have a 
general abstract for the panel (<250 words), plus abstracts for each of 
the individual papers (<250 words).


Suggestions for innovative roundtable are welcome. Roundtables may be 
organised around a theme, discipline, policy or research question, or 
could be focused on discussion of an important book in the field. 
Roundtables may feature up to five speakers, and no less than three. 
Instead of 15-20 minute papers, roundtable presenters will deliver short 
presentations (approximately 5 minutes) that will be moderated by the 
roundtable chair. These abbreviated presentations will leave plenty of 
time for discussion generated by presenters as well as members of the 
audience. Proposals for roundtables must include an application form 
with abstract (<250 words).
