Dear colleagues,

The James Joo-Jin Kim Program in Korean Studies at the University of
Pennsylvania (Penn) invites graduate students to join us at the 1st KSYS
Graduate Student Conference, which will take place on February 21-22
(half-day), 2020 at Penn as an international and multi-disciplinary
conference. The theme of the 1st-year conference is “Youth and Young
Adulthood in Korea.” This conference is open to graduate students from all
academic disciplines (Anthropology, Communication, Cultural Studies,
Economics, History, Literature, Political Science and Sociology, among
others) with an interest in Korea.

We are especially interested in projects that explore how they navigate the
vibrant and rapidly evolving Korean society and culture. Potential topics
may include but are not limited to:
- Emerging youth culture in Korean history
- Family relations and the generation gap
- Class, gender, and ethnicity issues
- Youth employment and unemployment
- Young people’s involvement in politics
- Youth culture in the digital age
- Transition to adulthood
