Collaborative research laboratories (Korea Research Collaboratories) are intensive research workshops designed to foster communication and advancement around a key theme in modern Korean society and scholarship. Leading researchers will be invited to participate in these 1-2 day events. The sessions will be open to wider audiences. Each workshop will be led by a core staff member of the Centre and focussed around their particular expertise in line with the key overarching themes of the Centre.  Our next Collaboratory will take place in November 2023 on the topic of "Korean and Japanese Male Beauty Aesthetics". This collaboratory is an invitation only event, but will feature one online roundtable to share findings.

Student Workshops 

These workshops will be designed to focus on core skills development among the Honours, postgraduate and early career school community. Over two days, students will come together to discuss critical methodologies and common research techniques in the context of their research. Each workshop will be led by a core staff member of the Centre and focused around their particular area of expertise.  

Our next Korea Day for students will take place in September 14th, 2023!
