The Center for Korean Studies in the Weatherhead East Asian Institute, Columbia University is pleased to announce the publication of the Journal of Korean Studies Spring 2017 issue, Volume 22, No.1. The articles will be available online shortly through Project Muse and JSTOR, 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.


The JKS welcomes submissions year round for publication. For more information please visit  <http://jks.weai.columbia.edu/> jks.weai.columbia.edu and  <https://www.dukeupress.edu/journal-of-korean-studies/> https://www.dukeupress.edu/journal-of-korean-studies/
