Our research projects are designed to create an intellectually vibrant community that
will bring together scholars, students and visitors to engage in innovative programs
of research, mentoring, and outreach to an audience beyond the ANU campus. Each
project reflects aspects of the ongoing research projects that faculty members and
graduate students in Korean/Asian Studies are interested in. As such, it is our goal
that the research projects outlined below will advance current research activities tied
to the training of PhD and M.A. students.
We have four research groups that focus on distinct themes with the shared goal of
investigating the transnational nature of Korean history, culture and people. In
carrying out these projects, we are keen to train promising, motivated graduate
students and also to support junior faculty members. To that end, each group is led
by a principal investigator who is a senior scholar and will oversee the entire process
while facilitating communication among academics and graduate students involved
in the project.
In addition to arranging regular work-in-progress presentations on campus, each research group will organize a conference or workshop that will bring together scholars and students in order to present their research and to get constructive feedback. The ultimate goal for each project is to promote publications focused on the theme of the project, either as journal articles or chapters in edited volumes.
