Graduate students within Korean studies across the humanities and social sciences will participate in the 3rd International Conference of NextGen Korean Studies Scholars (NEKST) at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. This annual conference aims to give graduate students in all academic fields an opportunity to present their research on Korea, share academic interests, as well as build a community of future Korean studies scholars. The conference covers any methodologies and disciplinary traditions, as long as the proposed paper topic is specific to Korea.
The 3rd NEKST Conference is sponsored by the Nam Center for Korean Studies, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor and the generous support of the Korea Foundation. The conference organizing committee is formed from students in the Korean Studies Graduate Working Group at the University of Michigan, the Woosong Korean Studies Graduate Fellows at Seoul National University and the Korean Studies Institute at the University of Southern California.
