Korea and Vietnam before the Twentieth Century On-line Speaker Series

Fall 2022–Winter 2023 on ZOOM

Hosted by the Center for Korean Studies and the Center for Southeast Asian Studies. It is also sponsored by Academy of Korean Studies the James P. Geiss and Margaret Y. Hsu foundation.

UCLA is fortunate to have a cluster of faculty members and graduate students conducting research on Korea and Vietnam across several programs and departments in diverse disciplines. We are also hoping to extend the comparative conversation beyond the wall of UCLA to a wider scholarly community.

The lectures will take place over Zoom. It will typically be attended by faculty members, graduate students, and some undergraduate students. The talk will be open to non-UCLA affiliates through a pre-registration system. You will receive specific instructions from the organizer about the core audience for your event but please keep in mind that one of the goals is to foster communication across the Kore and Vietnam area disciplines. Ideally, all presentations will be in English, though exceptions can be made. Please discuss this with the organizer. Unless otherwise noted, we envision a 45-50 minute talk followed by 30 minutes of Q and A.
