Call for papers – 2008 BAKS conference

Call for Papers: The 2008 Conference of the British Association of Korean Studies

The next conference of the British Association of Korean Studies (BAKS) will take place between the 8th and 10th of September 2008. The venue will be Clare College, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK. The theme of the proceedings will be “The Koreas at 60 – Looking Forward / Looking Back.”

The BAKS council invites submissions of paper abstracts on the theme of the conference from individuals who wish to participate. (These can either be individual submissions or panel proposals, and submissions are especially welcome from graduate students.). The deadline for submission of abstracts is December 31st, 2007. While BAKS hopes to provide for as many papers as possible, the council acts as the final arbiter in deciding which papers will be accepted and anticipates announcing the successful paper proposals in February 2008.

Details on the conference venue can be found here:

Further particulars on the anticipated cost of attending the conference will be announced in due course and will be publicised on the BAKS website at:

One thought on “Call for papers – 2008 BAKS conference

  1. Greetings!

    My colleague forwarded your 2008 conference just now. I am intersted in submitting an abstract; it will deal with the art historical issues of late Chosun dynasty; mostly tackling current scholarship on “influence” of Chinese art of the 17-18th c. Korea. I am currently out of country but will be back during the first week of January, then I can submit it by Jan. 10th. Could it work? I am assistant professor at the Univeristy of Colorado at Boulder (US) and currently conducing my postdoc research at Columbia Univ. I teach and research 17-18th c. Chinese and Korean Art.
    Thank you for your consideration.
