Korea’s Place in the World: Now and Twenty Years Hence



What is the future for the Korean peninsula, north and south, in the world of 2032? What are some major drivers of change that will create the Korea of 2032? What are possible scenarios for urbanisation and Korean cities? How will an immersive digital environment affect Korean culture and economy? What will the grey shift mean for Korean society and infrastructure in 2032?

The British Association for Korean Studies will hold a Workshop at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London, on 17 November 2012 on the topic of ‘Korea’s Place in the World: Now and Twenty Years Hence’. We invite paper presenters to turn their

expertise to the future, particularly in the fields of urbanisation, demography, and the digital revolution, and consider Korea as a case study. We will favour proposals that address the impact of technology on society and social change, and papers from post-graduate students are particularly welcome. All full papers submitted will be considered for publication in the Papers of the British Association for Korean Studies, after a peer review.

Deadline for abstracts: 1 September 2012
Deadline for full papers: 1 November 2012 (for those with an intention towards publication in BAKS Papers)
