University is holding its 1st (2017) Ateneo Korean Studies Junior  
Conference and Career Talk on March 28, 2017 (Tuesday) at Faber Hall,  
Ateneo de Manila University.

Supported by the Academy of Korean Studies, the conference hopes to respond  
to the increasing research initiatives pursued by students on topics  
related to Korea and seeks to serve as a platform for critically examining  
the relevance of Korean Studies to Filipino scholars. Specifically, it aims  
to (a) provide a venue for undergraduate and graduate students currently  
enrolled in any college/university in the Philippines to present their  
research on Korea; (b) engage with and learn from invited experts; and (c)  
dialogue with industry representatives about employment prospects for  
scholars with Korean Studies background.

The conference is interdisciplinary in nature and is therefore designed to  
gather individual papers from diverse fields and on any topic/theme on  
Korea. Through the paper presentations and discussions, the conference is  
expected to facilitate dialogue on pressing issues surrounding contemporary  
Korea and its implications on the Philippines as well as contribute to the  
building of a network of future Korean Studies scholars in the country.

As a pioneering initiative, the conference program will incorporate a  
career talk by representatives from relevant industries, including Korean  
and multinational companies.

Students and faculty of other universities are invited to the conference  
but due to to limited slots (30 slots only), registration will be on a
