Our Centre Chair says:
I am honoured and excited to resume my role as Chair of the Centre of Korean Studies, a position that I held for four years between 2013 and 2017. The Centre plays a vital role in furthering interest in and knowledge of Korea, and with its large concentration of Korean Studies academics and students, extensive range of programmes and courses on Korea, its active outreach programme, among other achievements, it continues to be the largest and most active centre of Korean Studies in the UK.
CKS prides itself on its active program on Korea-related events that span a wide range of topics, from pre-modern to contemporary times. Please join our mailing list to receive weekly e-bulletins for event notifications and further information.
The Centre is also proud to host visiting scholars, most of them from South Korea, and their presence at SOAS greatly enriches our research environment. Those interested in becoming a Visiting Scholar should contact the Chair.
The Centre also plays an important role in supporting post-graduate students working on Korea-related topics, and it regularly offers student grants. For further information, see the CKS Awards and Grants.
