Scottish CKS Distinguished Lecture Series – Q1 2021

The regular series of SOAS seminars was disrupted during 2020. While we look forward to seeing their 2021 programme, it’s great that the Scottish Centre for Korean Studies at the University of Edinburgh has stepped forward with a great series of talks for the first quarter of 2021. Talks are free, and conducted via Zoom. You’ll need to keep an eye on their Facebook page for registration links. The events will presumably appear on their website in due course.
