The Center for Korean Research at Columbia University is pleased to announce the publication of the Journal of Korean Studies special themed October 2018 issue, volume 23, no.2.  


Guest edited by Dafna Zur (Stanford University) and Christopher P. Hanscom (University of California, Los Angeles), the fall 2018 thematic issue, “Science and Literature in North and South Korea,” offers a groundbreaking framework for approaching the multilayered relations between literature and science both in Korea and in other sites. Paying particular attention to the ways in which literature and science share a linguistic medium, the nine articles that comprise this special issue show how literature and science interconnect as modes of understanding and perceiving the modern world.


The articles are available online 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 welcomes submissions year round for publication in the spring issue. 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/
