for Korea-related research across the social sciences and humanities in the
form of programming assistance, graduate fellowships, postdoctoral

sponsoring public lectures, conferences, workshops, and cultural events,
CKR advances academic knowledge and a greater public awareness of Korea in
the New York City area. CKR serves as a bridge between Korean studies in
North America and the most recent work of the Korean academic world through
its active partnerships with universities and institutions in South Korea.
The Center also maintains a global reach via its sponsorship of the field’s
leading journal, the *Journal of Korean Studies* (published by Duke
University Press).
