Dear  List members, 

My name is Wonhee Cho (Ph. D. Yale, East Asian History), and I am currently a researcher at the Jangseogak Archives, Academy of Korean Studies. With apologies for the cross posting, please see the following CFA for the 2018 2018 Jangseogak Hanmun (2018 Jangseogak Hanmun) Summer Workshop. 

­­Call for Applications: 

2018 Jangseogak Hanmun Summer 


(Intensive Literary/Classical Chinese Training Course for Students and
Junior Scholars)


The Jangseogak Archives at the Academy of Korean Studies is accepting applications
for 2018 Jangseogak Hanmun (Classical
Chinese) Summer Workshop, a three-week intensive on-campus language course from
2nd July to 20th July, 2018. We welcome application from undergraduate
students, graduate students or advanced degree holders of Korean Studies and/or
East Asian Studies. Applicants must have studied at least one year of Classical
Chinese or completed comparable course in Asian Studies. 


The workshop will run for 6 hours from Monday to Friday for three weeks
(morning lectures and afternoon practicum for translation), and will also
include field trips to explore historic sites related to the reading materials
addressed in the workshop. 


The workshop aims at creating a global knowledge-building community of
Korean studies. All lectures and discussions at the workshop will be conducted
in English; at the same time, it will require translation of the original
sources into English. Apart from the translation project, each participant will
write a no more than ten-to fifteen-page introductory article on one primary
source of his/her own choice from a list of fifty texts derived from the
Archives (to be completed within six months from the completion of the
workshop). The fifty texts will be carefully selected by the scholars of the
Archives in consideration of the participants’ expertise and interests. The authorship
of each translated piece and article will be accredited to the individual
contributor; however, both the translated sources and the introductory articles
will belong to the public domain of Korean studies and be published online for
academic purposes



The Academy of Korean Studies will provide the
participants with round-trip airfare (no more than 1,800 USD), tuition, and
board and lodging. Undergraduate
and graduate students are required to submit a letter of recommendation from
their advisors.
