The Center for Korean Research in the Weatherhead East Asian Institute, Columbia University is pleased to announce the publication of the Journal of Korean Studies Fall 2017 issue, Volume 22, No.2.  


Guest edited by Steven Chung (Princeton University) and Hyun Seon Park (Yonsei University), the fall 2017 thematic issue, “The Cold War in Korean Cinemas,” offers seven articles that complement each other in the ways they each redefine not only Korean cinema but the Cold War itself. This issue provides both a deep engagement with the archive and a set of major theoretical interventions. 


The articles will be available online shortly through read.dukeupress.edu and Project MUSE, including for individuals not affiliated with a subscribing institution. The abstracts for the current issue are available at  <http://jks.weai.columbia.edu/volumes/> jks.weai.columbia.edu.


The Journal of Korean Studies (JKS) publishes articles in all disciplines and across all time periods, both historical and contemporary. The JKS is committed to articles that engage with a Korea-related topic in a substantial way, take existing scholarship (in Korean and/or other languages) into account, and explore new methodologies and theoretical frameworks that speak to readerships beyond Korean studies. We encourage transnational, interdisciplinary approaches to scholarship.


JKS is currently accepting submissions for the special fall 2019 issue (Volume 24, No. 2) entitled “Archives, Archival Practice, and the Writing of History in Premodern Korea.” This issue is guest edited by Jungwon Kim (Columbia University). JKS also welcomes submissions year round for publication in the spring issue.
