7th International Conference of NextGen Korean Studies Scholars (NEKST)
University of Michigan
Ann Arbor, MI, USA

We invite graduate students in Korean Studies across all disciplines to
participate in the 7th International Conference of NextGen Korean Studies
Scholars (NEKST) at the University of Michigan – Ann Arbor. The NEKST
conference provides graduate students in Korean studies an opportunity to
share their research, receive feedback from faculty members and other
graduate students, and contributes towards the building of an
interdisciplinary community of future Korean studies scholars.

The two-day conference will feature traditional panel presentations,
workshop sessions for dissertation chapters/advanced papers, and a
professional development workshop. We will host prominent Korean studies
faculty members from across disciplines to serve as discussants and mentors.

Modest travel grants are available for participating graduate students.
Lodging and meals will be provided during the conference.


Current graduate students (MA/PhD) as well as those holding a terminal
master’s degree are eligible to apply. We welcome submissions from all
disciplines as long as the research topic is related to Korea.

To apply, please submit an abstract (250 word limit) by following the link
below. Abstracts should clearly state the research question, main argument,
methodology, results, and conclusions. The deadline for submission is *February
1, 2019*. You should expect to receive the results of your application
by *March
1, 2019*.

Applicants can choose to participate in one of two formats:
*Panel presentation*: The panel presentation format is open to all graduate
students. Graduate students who are accepted for this format will be
arranged into panels to give a fifteen minute presentation based on a
research paper that can range from 4000 to 10000 words. (The appropriate
length of a paper written for a fifteen minute presentation may vary by
discipline). Participants will receive comments about their paper from an
assigned faculty discussant. If accepted, completed papers will be due
by *April
26, 2019*.

*Chapter/Article workshop*: The chapter/article workshop format is open to
PhD students who have achieved candidacy. Manuscripts submitted for this
format should be a dissertation chapter or a polished pre-submission
journal article. Each forty minute workshop will be dedicated to the
discussion of a single manuscript, and an assigned faculty mentor will
provide detailed feedback on that manuscript. Manuscripts will be
pre-circulated to all faculty and graduate participants of the conference,
who will also be invited to provide comments. If accepted, completed
manuscripts will be due on *April 12, 2019*.

Applications will be accepted online only. Please click on the button below

The 7th NEKST Conference is sponsored by the Nam Center for Korean Studies
at the University of Michigan with support from the Academy of Korean
Studies. The conference organizing committee is composed of graduate
