The Social Science Research Council (SSRC) and the Korea Foundation are pleased to announce the fourth annual Korean Studies Dissertation Workshop.

When:  July 6-10, 2011

Where: Pacific Grove, CA – Asilomar Conference Center

Application Deadline: April 27, 2011


The Social Science Research Council Korean Studies Dissertation Workshop seeks to create a sustained network of advanced graduate students and faculty engaged in research on Korea. The four-day workshop provides an informal setting for participants to give and receive critical feedback on dissertations in progress.


Individual students will lead discussions of their projects with mentor faculty and peers from various disciplines to receive creative and critical input on improving their fieldwork plans or writing strategies. Last year’s mentors were Nancy Abelmann (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign), Sun Joo Kim (Harvard University), Seungsook Moon (Vassar College), and Jun Yoo (University of Hawaii at Manoa).


. Only full-time advanced graduate students, regardless of citizenship, who are enrolled at US or Canadian institutions are eligible.

. Participants may be in any social science or humanities field.

. Applicants must have an approved dissertation prospectus but cannot have completed writing for final submission.

. Special consideration will be given to students from universities that are not major Korean Studies institutions.
