Our Centre Chair says:
With growing numbers of students and PhD candidates in Korean studies and studies related to Korea (also outside SOAS in other colleges of the University of London), the Centre has become a national and international forum where research in progress can be presented and discussed in front of an informed audience.
Generous financial support from the Academy of Korean Studies (AKS) enables the Centre to hold a wide-range of Korea-related events throughout the year.
The Centre is proud to host an increasing number of visiting scholars from universities and other institutions in Korea and elsewhere, and this year we have welcomed more than eleven scholars. Their presence have greatly enriched our research environment, and we look forward to working closely with them in the future.
