- The Center for East Asian Studies (CEAS) and EALL welcome an honorary visiting fellow, Prof. Sung Jin Kim (Department of Korean education, Daegu University). His main research interests are: 1) modernity of Korean novel in the 20th century, 2) presenting literature work reading strucrures based on Korean modern history of criticism and cricital theories, and 3) liteturea education in middle and high school Korean education. During the academic year 2014-15, Prof. Kim will research into Korean literature's specialty and universality in relations to world literature in general and East Asian literature in particular.
- The Korean Language Program (KLP) is looking for volunteer Korean students for its "K-Language Buddies (한국어 도우미)" Program at UW-Madison. Volunteer students will be paired with the current Korean language students for language exchange as well as sharing incultural experiences each other. If you are interested, please contact Prof. BJ Lim at email@example.com.
The Korean Language Program (KLP) at UW-Madison
The KLP is currently offering four years of Korean language instruction from beginning to advanced levels. Unfortunately, the UW-Madison does not offer a major in Korean, yet, but hopes are high since EALL and the Center for East Asian Studies at UW-Madison are working very hard to launch a major in Korean in the near future.
