Migration and Korean Studies: Whither and Whence?
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Where: Open Grounds Corner Studio; 1400 W Main Street

Join visiting sociologists of Korea, Hae Yeon Choo (University of Toronto), Minjeong Kim (Virginia Tech), Jaeeun Kim (George Mason), Nora Kim (Mary Washington) and anthropologist Caren Freeman (UVa) for a roundtable discussion about the state of the field. What accounts for the sudden upsurge of interest in migration among scholars of contemporary Korea?

We welcome people with geographic interests outside Korea to share their thoughts on the ways in which migration studies intersects with area studies in different parts of the world.
