UWA KRC Postgraduate eWorkshop, 9-10 February 2021

UWA’s Korea Research Centre is organising a Postgraduate eWorkshop designed to provide a forum for those enrolled in a research degree course such as PhD, MPhil or MRes in Korean Studies to present their research, and receive feedback and mentoring from established international scholars in the field of Korean Studies. Postgraduate students are invited to submit proposals for presentations that draw on their dissertation. PhD students should have passed their confirmation of candidature at the time of applying.

What is an eWorkshop?

Rather than presenting a paper live, presenters will be required to record and submit a video presentation of no more than 10 minutes one month in advance of the eWorkshop. Instructions on how to do so will be provided beforehand. The videos will then be circulated to all participants prior the Workshop. 

The eWorkshop will be conducted on Zoom for 3 hours each day. For each video an internationally renowned Korean Studies scholar will be invited to act as discussant and provide specific feedback, after which the floor will be opened to further comments from all participants. Built into the eWorkshop will also be a publishing seminar and discipline-specific breakout groups. During the breakout groups participants will be able to have a detailed conversation with their discussant as well as other postgraduate students from the same discipline.

Key Dates

  • 9 November – due date for applications 
  • 7 December – successful applicants notified
