Kyujanggak Institute for Korean Studies
Seoul National University
The purpose of the Summer Workshop is to provide an annual platform for graduate students and junior scholars of Korean Studies to gain exposure to diverse disciplines and scholars outside their institution’s focus, as well as an opportunity to network with future colleagues.
Each summer the Kyujanggak Institute for Korean Studies offers graduate students and other young researchers in Korean Studies the opportunity to study with the top scholars in the field at Seoul National University. Held this year from July 13 to July 25, the 2008 Summer Workshop will cover the following eight areas: classical literature, contemporary literature, pre-modern history, modern history, sociology, linguistics, Confucianism, and Buddhism.
This workshop will comprise of morning lectures and afternoon discussions based on the reading material. In addition, private office hours will be held by leading professors in the field for the benefit of all participants.
In response to the evaluations given by last summer’s participants, all reading material and lectures will be in Korean. We will be posting the reading material on the website in March in order to give participants enough preparation time before the commencement of the workshop. Tutors will be available to assist workshop participants with readings in July.
There is a 25 person limit on the workshop. Participants should be graduate students or junior scholars of Korean Studies based either abroad or in Korea. Acceptance will be evaluated based on the participant’s application.
