Speaker series & artists-in-residence program
In hosting scholars and artists of international reputation who
are doing exciting and innovative research in the field of
Korean Studies or creative work in traditional Korean art forms, this Series and Program are important venues
for further fostering the University's vibrant intellectual community.
Our hope is to create an
integrated platform whereby invited speakers will become part of the intellectual
community in Canberra through participation in Master Class Workshops with graduate
students, film evenings and public recitations or concerts. The Series will include a wide
range of perspectives on 'Global Korea'. In addition to academic researchers we will
invite filmmakers, artists and novelists to introduce their work to Australia and the
Southern Hemisphere. In this we will help ANU fulfill its mission as the leading institution
in Asian Studies in the Southern Hemisphere and consolidate the Korean Studies Program at
ANU as a hub of transnational Korean Studies that connects Korea historically, culturally,
politically, and economically with the world.
Language and culture sessions at local high schools
Our goal is to forge a closer academic and cultural relationship with high schools through activities such as
guest lectures and participation in school activities (eg UN Day at Narrabundah College).
The Korea Institute will continue to support and sponsor the annual Korean Speech Contest
