Announcement of European Journal of Korean Studies Vol 19 (1)

Articles in this issue’s special section imagine the future architectures and spaces of Pyongyang and North Korea. Further papers touch on the modern individual Korean literature, K-pop problematics and colonial Korean labour histories. We are also grateful to have an important translation of a paper critiquing Pak Yuha’s Comfort Women of the Empire. The European Journal of Korean Studies Vol 19 (1) also offers a roundtable review of Monica Kim’s recent Interrogation Rooms of the Korean War: A Hidden History as well as reviews of books by Eugene Park and David Fields and two new translations of important Korean texts, namely T’aengniji translated by Inshil Choe Yoon and The Tale of Cho Ung translated by Sookja Cho.

We welcome new writing by scholars from Western and Eastern Europe, Korea, Australasia, and beyond and hope that readers will consider submitting their own work for future issues. We take a detailed approach to peer review and copy editing, are committed to diversity and take particular pride in our work with early career scholars. The journal appears twice a year, has ISSN numbers and is now a member of Crossref.  SSCI, SCOPUS and other citation indexing is in progress.
