We invite graduate students in Korean Studies across all disciplines to participate in the 8th International Conference of NextGen Korean Studies .. Read more Scholars (NEKST) which will be held virtually across five days. At the NEKST conference, graduate students in Korean studies will have the opportunity to share their research, receive feedback from Korean studies faculty members and other graduate students, as well as contribute toward building a dynamic, multidisciplinary community of future Korean studies scholars. We will host prominent Korean studies faculty members from across disciplines and institutions to serve as discussants, as well as mentors. The 8th NEKST conference is sponsored by the Nam Center for Korean Studies at the University of Michigan with support from the Academy of Korean Studies. On the other hand, while the recent period is characterized by increased mobility and enhanced diversity, the encounter of difference is never a new social phenomenon. What kind of social, political, and cultural differences and clashes have constituted social dynamics of Korea(s) and Koreans throughout history? In what ways will our attention to encounters and interactions of difference shed new light on the field of Korean Studies?
