Call for Papers for RCKC 2019 Conference on Transnational Ties to South Korea


The Research Center for Korean Community (RCKC) plans to hold an academic conference on Friday, October 25, 2019 at Queens College of CUNY. The theme of this year’s conference is Korean migrants’ and Korean Americans’ transnational ties to the homeland. Transnationalism has become an important topic, not only in the social sciences, but also in the daily lives of migrants all over the world. For this particular conference, we are interested in social, economic, cultural, business, professional, political, religious, medical, and other types of transnational ties to South Korea.

If you are selected to participate in the conference, RCKC will cover your travel expenses (including domestic air/train/bus transportation to New York City and two nights of hotel accommodations in Flushing, Queens). We plan to publish the conference papers in an edited book. In addition to covering travel expenses, we will pay $300 for revised and publishable manuscripts that adhere to guidelines (to be determined).

If you are interested in participating in the conference, please send (1) the title and a short summary of your paper (no more than one page single-spaced) and (2) a short bio (150 to 200 words). As we are a non-profit research center, we need this information to submit a grant proposal for financial support for the conference. The submission deadline is March 31, 2019.

Please send paper summaries and bios to Thomas Chung (editorchung@gmail.com). If you have any questions about the conference, contact Thomas Chung at the above-listed email address or Pyong Gap Min, the Director of RCKC and Distinguished Professor of Sociology at Queens College and the Graduate Center of CUNY (pyonggap.min@qc.cuny.edu).
