The University of Michigan Nam Center for Korean Studies held its annual manuscript workshops virtually in May 2021, to offer 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.
Three junior faculty were chosen for the workshop:
June Hee Kwon, Sacramento State
For her book project, "Borderland Dreams: Korean Chinese Migrant Bodies, Money, and Time"
Eleana Kim, UC Irvine
Li Zhang, UC Davis
Susan Hwang, Indiana University
For her book project, "Uncaged Songs: Culture and Politics of Protest Music in South Korea"
Karen Tongson, University of Southern California
Joshua Pilzer, University of Toronto
Ji Young Kim, Queens College
For her book project, "From Traitors to Citizens: Colonial Collaboration, Cold War, and Postliberation Korean Literature"
Nayoung Aimee Kwon, Duke University
Yoon Sun Yang, Boston University
