The Sixth North American Workshop on Korean Literature:
NAOKOL 2013 Call for Papers
Date: November 15, 2013
Venue: Columbia University
Sponsors: LTI Korea; Center for Korean Research and Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures, Columbia University
We invite submissions from those working in any discipline or field (for example, history, literature, film, queer studies, anthropology, Asian American studies, communications, visual culture) who are incorporating Korean literature and/or film from any period into their work in a significant way for the sixth annual North American Workshop on Korean Literature (NAOKOL) to be held on November 15, 2013 at Columbia University.
Among the aims of NAOKOL are to share ongoing projects with colleagues working in the field and to widely promote Korean literary and film studies. We are seeking submissions by scholars at any stage of their careers--dissertators, junior scholars, senior scholars--who are interested in presenting portions of their dissertations or book projects for discussion at the Workshop. ABD's and junior scholars are particularly encouraged to apply.
Those interested in presenting their work at the Workshop should send a 300 word abstract and short CV to the email address below. As in the past, travel and accommodation expenses will be defrayed to the greatest extent possible. The deadline for submissions is July 31, 2013.

Call for Papers on "Korean Culture, New Media, Digital Humanities"
Thematic issue of The Journal of Korean Studies, Volume 20 No. 2 (Fall 2015)
The Journal of Korean Studies special issue 2015
Due July 31, 2014
What are the relations between print-based Korean cultural production and new media? How did old media that were once considered new--radio, film, and television, for example--interact with each other and with older print-based forms in colonial and/or postcolonial Korea? In what ways do contemporary new media shape current forms of experimental and/or popular literary, filmic, and artistic practices in an increasingly globalized context? How will research methodologies associated with the digital humanities change the way we approach scholarly work on Korea?
The 2015 thematic issue of The Journal of Korean Studies invites papers that take an interdisciplinary approach in exploring the significance of new media and digital humanities to studies of Korean
literature, film, visual culture, and history. We welcome papers that focus on the use of new media and technologies (for example, digital reading, computer-generated imagery, installation or performance art
that negotiates real and virtual worlds), as well as papers dealing with any period (premodern/modern) that both comment upon use of digital humanities-related research methods and employ them in the
paper itself. We encourage manuscripts on Korean cultural production that take into consideration in some way one or more of the following: the history of media in Korea; the relations among different media in the twentieth century; interactions between changing technologies and questionings of the "human"; the digital turn that informs the contemporary scene.
Those whose papers are selected for the special issue will be invited to present their work-in-progress for discussion at a workshop sponsored by the Center for Korean Research, Columbia University, to
be held in Fall 2014. This special issue of The Journal of Korean Studies will be guest edited by Theodore Hughes. For further information, please contact Theodore Hughes at email@example.com.
