RAS Colloquium 
We are launching regular monthly meetings for those engaged in Korean Studies, either in an academic setting or as freelance amateurs. The main aim is to bring together people from various institutions and backgrounds, who otherwise never meet despite their common interest. If you are interested in joining the Colloquium, please write to Brother Anthony at  ansonjae at gmail.com

See http://www.raskb.com/  for full details of all our activities as well as our books for sale and our library.
