Global Korean Literature at the Crossroads:
Celebration of Continuity and TransformationDuke University - November 13-14, 2015
Korean literary studies in North America, once a discipline held together by the dedication of a few scholars, is a burgeoning field today. The last few years saw the publication of an unprecedented number of scholarly monographs and translations. Major universities throughout the United States and Canada are increasing their course offerings in Korean Literature. In light of these transformations the inaugural meeting of the Korean Literature Association (formerly NAOKOL), to be held at Duke University on November 13-14, 2015, will reflect on where we are and where we are headed as a field.
The gathering brings together North American scholars working on a wide range of topics in Korean literature and culture, including performance, art, and film. The purpose of the gathering is to nurture emerging scholarship, especially at the graduate level, and create a venue for open exchange among scholars, writers, translators, and publishers.
Papers on all aspects of Korean literature and culture, especially those on cross-cultural or border-crossing themes will be considered. We welcome papers that reflect on the transformation of Korean literature and culture in a transnational or global context. Submissions by junior scholars and advanced graduate students are encouraged.
Please submit a 150-200 word abstract and brief bio with subject line Korean Literature Association: Last Name, First Name to Nayoung Aimee Kwon, email@example.com, by August 10, 2015. Visit the website: http://korlit.org/index.html
