2002 Korean Studies Workshop: A eight-day program in Seoul, Korea, July 21-28, 2002

Korea University is pleased to announce its summer 2002 Korean Studies Workshop, an intensive eight-day introduction to Korea for American undergraduate college students. This year's workshop, Modernization in Korea, will examine the profound social and cultural changes Korea has undergone in the past 100 years. The program will feature lectures by prominent Korean and American scholars and field trips to various historical and cultural sites in and around Seoul. Knowledge of the Korean language is not required.

The dates for this program are set for July 21- 28, 2002, and it will be carried out at Korea University in Seoul, Korea. Expenses of the selected participants will be covered by the grant including accommodations, and meals, and round-trip airfare (participants will need to make their own travel arrangements and will be reimbursed up to $1,200). Participants will be expected to contribute $100 when selected and to purchase their own travelers' health insurance for the duration of the program.

The program will be led by Professor John Duncan, director of the Center for Korean Studies at UCLA, and Professor Andrew Kim of the Graduate School of International Studies at Korea University.
