2019 Jangseogak Hanmun Summer Workshop
(Intensive Literary/Classical Chinese Training Course
for Students and Junior Scholars)
The Jangseogak Archives at the Academy of Korean Studies is accepting applications for 2019 Jangseogak Hanmun (Classical Chinese) Summer Workshop, a three-week intensive on-campus language course from 1st July to 19th July, 2019. We welcome application from undergraduate students, graduate students or advanced degree holders of Korean Studies and/or East Asian Studies. Applicants must have studied at least one year of Classical Chinese or completed comparable course in Asian Studies.
The workshop will run for 6 hours from Monday to Friday for three weeks (morning lectures and afternoon practicum for translation), and will also include field trips to explore historic sites related to the reading materials addressed in the workshop.
The workshop aims at creating a global knowledge-building community of Korean studies. All lectures and discussions at the workshop will be conducted in English; at the same time, it will require translation of the original sources into English. Apart from the translation project, each participant will write a no more than ten-to fifteen-page introductory article on one primary source of his/her own choice from a list of fifty texts derived from the Archives (to be completed within six months from the completion of the workshop). The fifty texts will be carefully selected by the scholars of the Archives in consideration of the participants’ expertise and interests. The authorship of each translated piece and article will be accredited to the individual contributor; however, both the translated sources and the introductory articles will belong to the public domain of Korean studies and be published online for academic purposes
The Academy of Korean Studies will provide the participants with round-trip airfare (no more than 1,800 USD), tuition, and board and lodging. Undergraduate and graduate students are required to submit a letter of recommendation from their advisors.
Undergraduate and graduate students only: One confidential recommendation letter addressing the importance of hanmun to your study should be sent directly by the referee by March 11th, 2019 to firstname.lastname@example.org
Question may be directed to email@example.com
