Welcome to the Center for Korean Research
Since its establishment in 1988 within the East Asian Institute (now the Weatherhead East Asian Institute), the Center for Korean Research has played a leading role in the study of Korea within Columbia University, the New York City area, and beyond. Read More...
By sponsoring public lectures, conferences, workshops, and cultural events such as movies and concerts on Korea-related topics, the CKR works to advance academic knowledge and a greater public awareness of Korea in the New York City area and, more broadly, North America. CKR also serves as a bridge between Korean Studies in North America and the most recent work of the Korean academic world through its sponsorship of visiting scholars and active partnerships with universities and institutions in South Korea. The CKR hosts the annual Columbia University Alumni Association of Korea Colloquium Series on Contemporary Korean Affairs and the Korea Foundation Colloquium Series on Korean Cultural Studies. The CKR also sponsors the annual "Center for Korean Research Manhae Prize for Korean Language" in the Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures.
