I always try to get to the BAKS and Joint East Asian Studies conferences – a great way to learn, meet like-minded people, broaden your horizons and enjoy yourself. This one looks particularly interesting.
There will be six panels on Korea:
- two on North Korea,
- two on popular culture in South Korea,
- one on historiography, and
- one on the Imjin Waeran.
There are also panels on broad East Asian issues such as:
energy, migration, social change, the legacies of the Cold War, and contemporary Korea-Japan relations.
Plenty to keep you interested for three days.
JOINT EAST ASIAN STUDIES CONFERENCE
Organised by the
British Association for Korean Studies,
British Association for Chinese Studies, and
British Association for Japanese Studies
Date: 5 to 7 September, 2013

Links and further info:
- Fee is £110 (BAKS members: £80) which covers attendance, refreshments and lunches. Accommodation is available for a small extra fee.
- Update 3 March 2018: the University of Nottingham, who hosted the conference, have removed all record of it from their website, and the links that were originally posted here no longer work so I have removed them. Sadly, neither BAKS, BACS nor BAJS have details of the conference in their website archives, so it seems, sadly, that we can no longer read about what the conference was about.
