Dear Friends and Colleagues,

this is a reminder that you still have a month to submit your brilliant
ideas for the AKSE conference 2023 in Copenhagen!
The submission deadline is *September 15*, which is the final deadline and
will not be extended.
Submit your proposals here:

22-25 June 2023, Copenhagen (Denmark) - Call for Papers -
The University of Copenhagen will host the 31st biennial AKSE Conference as
an in-person event from 22 (Thursday) to 25 (Sunday) June 2023 in
Copenhagen, Denmark. The conference is co-organized by the University of
Copenhagen with the AKSE Council. The Association for Korean Studies in
Europe, founded in 1977, is the main scholarly society for Korean Studies
in Europe. Its objectives are to stimulate and coordinate academic Korean
Studies in all countries of Europe, and to contribute to the spread of
knowledge of Korea among a wider public.
The biennial AKSE conferences provide an opportunity for European scholars
of Korean Studies to gather and exchange research. The conferences host the
AKSE membership meeting, making this the most important event of the
association as such. AKSE conferences are also a way for European scholars
to communicate with the global academic community. We thus warmly welcome
non‐Europeans and non‐members.

1) Subjects and general guidelines
∙ Both individual abstracts and panel proposals can be submitted. Panel
proposals will be treated preferentially. All paper proposals will receive
a double-blind assessment. We strongly encourage panel diversity
(institutional, national, disciplinary), and this will be an important
criterion in the final selection process.
∙ Subjects in all areas of Korean Studies are welcome. During the abstract
submission, submitters will have to choose a field for their presentation.
∙ All abstracts should be written in English, but the official languages of
the conference are: English, French, German and Korean. You must specify
the presentation language if it is different from English.
2) Presentation guidelines
∙ Each panel will last 105 minutes and typically consist of four
∙ To allow plenty of time for discussion, each presentation should not
exceed 15 minutes (60 minutes for presentations, 45 minutes for discussion).
∙ In the case of an organized panel, a fifth person can be invited as panel
chair by the panel organizer. Alternatively, one of the four panelists can
act as chair.
∙ Normally panels do not include discussants. The panel chair can act as
discussant if invited to do so.
3) Note on panel proposals
∙ Panel proposals should include a concise title (e.g. “Korean Diaspora in
US”), keywords (up to three), the number of panelists (five in the case of
a non-presenting chair or four in the case of a presenting chair), and a
panel abstract of up to 300 words.
∙ In addition, each panelist should prepare an abstract of up to 300 words,
excluding the paper title and keywords.

excluding the paper title and keywords (up to three).
