3rd Annual Korea University Korean History Graduate Student Conference:

Incorporating Different Perspectives on Korean History




Korea University, Seoul, South Korea


Friday, May 1st, 2015


The Korea University Korean History (KUKH) Graduate Student Conference invites graduate students from around the world and conducting research in Korean history to submit abstracts for our 2015 conference. The KUKH Graduate Student Conference is an annual conference which aims to provide a forum for graduate students to exchange ideas and discuss current research on Korean history. This one-day conference on Korea University’s Anam campus in Seoul is an opportunity for young scholars to present their research to both their peers and eminent scholars. All panels will be moderated by Korea University faculty and graduate students. 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 2015 Annual Korea University Korean History Graduate Student Conference special theme is “Incorporating Different Perspectives on Korean History,” and welcomes papers that focus on any historical time period.. Although broad, the theme for next year’s conference hopes to encourage graduate students studying abroad to include innovative interpretations, new perspectives, and fresh approaches to Korean history.  The May 2014 conference hosted eight graduate student presenters from five countries, eight educational institutions, and approximately 100 in attendance.. The next conference will feature a special event the day before the conference for participants to share ideas and opinions, and to fraternize with Korea University graduate students and faculty.
