About

Korean Studies is a fast-growing academic field, and the time is ripe for researchers to look back on their achievements and to probe future possibilities for Korean Studies as a discipline or a research field. Thus, this Forum has three aims:

Furthermore, through this Forum, we want to secure a long-term cooperative network among the project leaders, and to share the opportunities and constraints that have emerged during the course of their projects. These will be used for a more objective evaluation process as well as to help in development planning for each project in the Core University Program. For this purpose, we plan to make conference proceedings that will consist of an analysis of each project of the Core University Program represented at the 2017 meeting. This will provide future participants with important implications of program designs and contents, hence greatly assisting in their future planning. Thus, we anticipate that each program director will provide a general overview and analysis of their respective project.
