Center For Korean Studies

 


Established in 1972, the Center for Korean Studies coordinates and develops resources for the study of Korea at the University of Hawai`i. The Center seeks to promote interdisciplinary and intercultural approaches to Korean studies by drawing on its faculty members in disciplines as diverse as anthropology, architecture, art, Asian studies, communication, creative writing, economics, ethnomusicology, education, geography, history, language, linguistics, literature, management, political science, sociology, and urban and regional planning.

With the largest concentration of Korea scholars and resources outside of Korea itself, the Center strives to be the premier institution for the study of Korea in the United States. The Center conducts scholarly conferences; sponsors research projects; presents colloquia, seminars, and lectures; publishes significant research on Korea; and contributes to the enhancement of the University's library system and other University research facilities.
