CALL FOR APPLICATIONS – University of Michigan Manuscript Workshop

Posted on: 02.02.2018

The University of Michigan Nam Center for Korean Studies is accepting applications for its inaugural manuscript workshop. The manuscript workshop, to be held on May 12, 2018 (Sat), will offer two pre-tenure scholars in Korean Studies, preparing a book-length manuscript or other similarly substantial academic publication, with an opportunity to further develop their manuscripts for publication.

At the workshop, the participants will receive critical feedback on their manuscript from up to two senior faculty mentors, and the participants will be asked to nominate the senior faculty mentors as part of the application. Each manuscript will be circulated in advance and discussed in turn.

The Nam Center seeks to develop a network of scholars in Korean studies, and the workshop participants will be asked to serve as a discussant for one paper session of the 2018 International Conference of NextGen Korean Studies Scholars (NEKST), which will take place concurrent to the workshop on May 11-12, 2018.

Domestic round-trip economy fare to DTW, and local expenses (ground transportation, lodging, and meals) will be provided for each participant.
