CKS Seminar Programme
The Centre of Korean Studies seminar series regularly presents current research on Korea, with a focus on European scholarship. Since the academic year 2005/06, the Centre has been able to hold these seminars on a weekly basis due to support from the ELP programme (as major contributor in 2005/06), and the SOAS-AKS Institution Project (as major contributor from 2006/07 onwards).
The seminars are free and open to the public unless otherwise stated.
Registration is essential to guarantee a place.
Please note that we do not distribute seminar notes.
