Special Lecture

Kyujanggak Book Talk 2023 Series

  • The Kyujanggak Institute for Korean Studies is hosting a series of special lectures by inviting overseas authors in the field of Korean studies. In its efforts to globalize Korean Studies, Kyujanggak launched in 2013 a program of guest lectures in which Korean studies scholars present their most recent books published outside Korea to a Korean audience. Among Kyujanggak’s core missions are to make its books and archives available to a wider audience and to facilitate international scholars’ contact with Korean studies in South Korea. Conversely, Kyujanggak also tries to introduce the important contributions of international scholars to a domestic audience. To this end, it has already held an exhibition on the history of Korean studies abroad, and now has added this lecture program, in which an international scholar discusses his/her important monograph, published in the past five years. After the lecture in which the book is introduced, one or two discussants further clarify its contributions by situating it in wider research contexts, especially in reference to the researches carried out within Korea.
    This year all lectures are held online via ZOOM meeting.
