To AKSE colleagues in Europe (members of the Association for Korean 
Studies in Europe)

Dear colleagues,

The AKSE Newsletter is a precious record of Korean Studies in Europe, 
and it has been continuously published for the past 43 years.

At the 29^th AKSE Conference in Rome, I volunteered to take over the 
compilation and editing of the /AKSE Newsletter/ from my capable 
predecessor, Professor Vladimir Tikhonov. At the same time, the Council 
decided to re-build its format for publication of the /AKSE Newsletter/ 
and upload more archival material to better preserve the history of 
Korean Studies in Europe. We envision a more interactive format that 
will allow you to update your entries, broadcast your latest successes 
in the promotion of Korean Studies in Europe, and easily search for and 
compile information on colleagues and other Korean Studies programmes 
across Europe. These efforts are on-going, but in the interim, I would 
like to solicit information from you for the 43^rd /AKSE Newsletter/ in 
the old format so that we will have up-to-date information when we 
create our new version.

I know that many people are about to depart for vacation, but I would 
ask that you please send me a report for your institution for the 
academic year of autumn 2018 to autumn 2019 by *15 September*. I request 
that this report in MS WORD and sent to:

Email address: jay.lewis at orinst.ox.ac.uk

More detailed submission guidelines are below.

Yours sincerely,

Jay Lewis
