Our Centre Chair says:
It is with great pleasure that I welcome you all – students, CKS members, Visiting Scholars and others - to a new exciting academic session 2020/21. I am honoured to resume my role as Chair of the Centre of Korean Studies, a position I have held twice previously, 2004 to 2007 and 2009 to 2013. SOAS has one of the largest concentrations of Korean Studies scholars in Europe and offers a wide range of programmes and courses on Korea. With its active outreach programme and seminar series, our Centre not only coordinates Korea-related activities within the School, but also serves as a national and international forum for interdisciplinary exchange among Koreanists. This academic session we will continue with our Friday evening seminars and will also organise film screenings and other Korea-related events, so please join our mailing list to receive e-bulletins for event notifications and other information. I look forward to seeing you all at our events this year!
