Korea-Australia relations during a time of transition Symposium
Recent developments on the Korean peninsula are promising an end to a stalemate in peace negotiations between North and South. The political and economic implications for the two Koreas and their allies are enormous and they are challenging alliances. In association with the Embassy of the Republic of Korea, and with its generous support, the ANU Korea Institute is hosting a one-day Symposium on the future of the Korean peninsula, security in the region, and Korea-Australia relations. Featuring key analysts from Australia and Korea, it seeks to identify the pathways to success and the possible causes of failure.
The 10th biennial KSAA conference was a great success. With the help of a wonderful team of assistants, Assoc. Prof. Bronwen Dalton and Dr Yoon Moon Jung did a beautiful job arranging and managing the program, and ensuring the procedures ran as smoothly as they did.
Roald Maliangkay has published a new book entitled Broken Voices: Postcolonial Entanglements and the Preservation of Korea’s Central Folksong Traditions (University of Hawaii`i Press, 2017).
