The Korean Studies Graduate Students Convention (KSGSC 2006) in the Czech
Second Call for Papers
The Korean Studies Graduate Students Convention (KSGSC) is an international
conference for young researchers and students working on topics related to
Korea organised by leading Korean studies institutes in Europe. The third
KSGSC is planned for September this year. The convention will be accompanied
by a cultural programme related to Korea and the commemoration of the 55th
anniversary of the establishment of Korean Studies in the Czech Republic
(Czechoslovakia). The KSGSC aims to be an event where graduate students from
around Europe can come together to present their work and share ideas and
experiences, and to induce close cooperation and joint research projects.
This year's KSGSC follows up with two previous international conferences
organised in 2004 at Ruhr Universität, Bochum, and in 2005 at SOAS, London.
The event is led by a motivation to firmly establish the tradition of the
European KSGSC, enhance cooperation among young European researchers in the
field, and improve the level of mutual information exchange.
We now invite you to submit your ideas for a paper related to Korean studies
in the form of short abstract (one page MS Word, single spaced) that you
