Meeting Description: EURKOREA 2013
A Conference on European Perspectives of Korea
Trinity College Dublin, November 2013

The prevalent objective of this conference is to develop knowledge about how Korea is seen from Europe, but also on how a number of European cultural and social aspects are seen from Korea.

Other aims are related to this central objective.

The conference should promote intercultural communication, and should additionally bring together a number of academics interested in Korean cultural and social features.

Various fields of academic competence should be stimulated through the project - such as linguistics, literature, political science, sociology, diplomatic relations, studies on Orientalism and Occidentalism, war studies, and women studies.

The event is scheduled for November 8 and 9, 2013 (preceded by an afternoon registration on the 7th). The event will be hosted by Trinity College Dublin, and held in the university Long Room Hub building. The conference convenors are Roberto Bertoni (Associate Professor of Italian) and Lorna Carson (Assistant Professor in Applied Linguistics). Two keynote speakers will be invited. The Friday keynote speaker is Prof. In-Jin Yoon (Dept of Sociology, Korea University).

The Acta (selected papers) will be published.

The planned conference will happen in the year that marks thirty years of diplomatic relations between the Republic of Korea and the Republic of Ireland, and this event will hopefully be highlighted in a special way during the conference.

The volume Scorci di Corea / Glimpses of Korea, due to be published in 2013 by Trinity College Dublin and Trauben Turin, will be launched at the conference.
