9th Annual Korea University Graduate Student Conference:

Narratives and Counter-narratives in Korean History

 

Korea University, Seoul, South Korea

Friday, May 27th, 2022

 

The Korea University Graduate Student (KUGS) Conference invites graduate students from around the world and conducting research in Asian studies to submit abstracts for our 2022 conference. The KUGS Conference is an annual conference which aims to provide a forum for graduate students to exchange ideas and discuss current research on Asian studies. This conference, to be held online through Korea University’s Anam campus in Seoul, is an opportunity for young scholars to present their research to both their peers and eminent scholars. The conference will also enable participants to meet others in their field conducting similar research, and to gain experience in presenting their work for discussion.

The 2022 9th Annual Korea University Graduate Student Conference special theme is “Narratives and Counter-narratives in Korean History.” We welcome papers that cover any time period in history. Although all applications will be taken into consideration, special consideration will be given to papers regarding theories, discourses, narratives, and counternarratives for analyzing, understanding, and depicting history. We also appreciate papers related to fields in Asian Studies, particularly ones that can provide comparative interpretations with regard to Korean history. Our goal of the 2022 conference is to provide a space for young researchers studying Korean history with creative and innovative ideas to investigate diverse perspectives.
