Please post the following CFP to the members of the Korean Studies mailing


*S/N Korean Humanities*

*Call for Papers *

*(March 2020)*

*S/N Korean Humanities* is a peer-reviewed Korean studies academic journal
published biannually in March and September by the Institute of Humanities
for Unification (IHU) at Konkuk University, Seoul, Korea. Launched in March
2015, *S/N Korean Humanities* offers a forum of debate for scholars whose
methodologies, theories, and conceptual frameworks for the study of
inter-Korean division and unification contribute to supporting “humanities
for unification (*T’ongilinmunhak*)” as distinctively defined by the

We regard unification as a *process* of communication, healing, and
integration of *all *Koreans in South Korea, North Korea, and diasporic
communities. In this connection, *S/N Korean Humanities* proposes a unique
platform for building *integrated Korean studies* by presenting research in
both *Hankukhak* and *Chos**ŏ**nhak. *Our new humanities-based approach to
unification provides a critique of existing perspectives within which
unification has been associated with unilateral institutional change in the
sphere of politics, economy, or military rather than gradual shifts in the
attitudes, emotions, values, and identities of Koreans.

Submissions of manuscripts are accepted for peer review throughout the
year. Each issue of *S/N Korean Humanities *publishes special theme
articles and those broadly pertaining to “humanities for unification” or
integrated Korean studies.

*Themes Covered in S/N Korean Humanities Include:*


   Philosophical studies of systems of thoughts and ideologies of South and
   North Korea

   Theoretical and/or empirical studies of national identity (national
   commonalities and differences) of South and North Korea and Korean diasporas

   Historical studies of lifestyles and cultures of South Koreans, North
   Koreans, and and Korean diasporas

   Studies of South and North Korea’s literary works, films and mass media
   (TV shows, propagandas, etc.)

   Studies of Koreans’ historical traumas and their healing

*Special Theme: New Research on Korean State Violence and Healing*

*Deadline*: *December 30, 2019*

We are currently soliciting contributions of original works and book
reviews for the March 2020 issue. The special theme of this issue is “*New
Research on Korean State Violence and Healing*,” as a tribute to the
victims of the Korean War (1950) and the government’s suppression of the
May 18 Gwangju Democratic Uprising (1980). The perpetration of state
violence rooted in ideological conflict have locked the Korean people’s
attitudes, emotions, and even the unconscious within the* habitus *of
division. For the March 2020 issue, *S/N Korean Humanities* seeks to
highlight the latest cutting-edge scholarship on new interpretations,
memorialization, and healing of relevant cases including, but not limited
to, the Korean War and May 18. The March 2020 issue will discuss the
consequences of Korean state violence and the different ways in which they
are either being reinforced or reconsidered. Successful contributors will
be paid on publication in accordance with the journal’s remuneration
