JKS March 2020 Announcement
The Center for Korean Research in the Weatherhead East Asian Institute, Columbia University is pleased to announce the publication of the Journal of Korean Studies March 2020 issue, Volume 25, No.1. This issue represents the last general issue prepared while the Journal of Korean Studieswas located at Columbia. The Journal has moved and is now housed at the George Washington University. Notification of future issues will occur under the direction of the new Editor-in-Chief, Jisoo Kim.
The articles are available online through read.dukeupress.edu and Project MUSE, including for individuals not affiliated with a subscribing institution.
The Journal of Korean Studies (JKS) publishes articles in all disciplines and across all time periods, both historical and contemporary. The JKS is committed to articles that engage with a Korea-related topic in a substantial way, take existing scholarship (in Korean and/or other languages) into account, and explore new methodologies and theoretical frameworks that speak to readerships beyond Korean studies. We encourage transnational, interdisciplinary approaches to scholarship.
JKS welcomes submissions year round for publication in the spring issue. For more information please visit https://www.dukeupress.edu/journal-of-korean-studies/
