The University of Michigan Nam Center for Korean Studies held its inaugural manuscript workshop on May 12, 2018 (Sat), to offer two pre-tenure scholars in Korean Studies, preparing a book-length manuscript or other similarly substantial academic publication, with an opportunity to further develop their manuscripts for publication by offering participants the opportunity to receive constructive critical feedback on their manuscripts by senior faculty mentors.
Two junior faculty were chosen for the workshop:
Jae Won Chung
Assistant Professor of Korean
Department of Asian Languages and Civilizations, University of Colorado Boulder
For his book project: Picturing Everyday Life: The Cultural Politics of Saenghwal in Postwar South Korea (1953-1959)
Kyeong Hee Choi
Associate Professor in Modern Korean Literature, Department of East Asian Languages and Civilizations, University of Chicago
Associate Professor, Department of Asian Languages and Cultures, UCLA
Assistant Professor in Korean
Department of East Asian Languages and Literatures, Ohio State University
For his book project: Gangnam: Cultural Globalization of the South Korean Dreamland
Associate Professor, Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures and the Gender Studies Program, University of Southern California
Kyung Hyun Kim
Professor, Department of East Asian Studies and Program in Visual Studies, School of Humanities, UC Irvine
The Nam Center seeks to develop a network of scholars in Korean studies, and the workshop participants are asked to serve as a discussant for one paper session of the 2018 International Conference of NextGen Korean Studies Scholars (NEKST), which is concurrent to the workshop on May 11-12, 2018. All participants are expected to attend NEKST and serve as a discussant for one of the NEKST paper sessions.
This workshop is made possible with the generous support of the Academy of Korean Studies.
