Immigration and Deportation

Abstract Submission Deadline: MAY 31, 2017

Conference Dates: August 23-24, 2017

For thousands of people, violence and persecution drive them from their homeland, seeking safety and solace. Situations of fleeing from violence, political unrest, escaping poverty, seeking freedom, seeking opportunity, joining loved-ones, or environmental disaster (Heartland Alliance), may cause either sudden or planned upheaval. While the threat to life remains constant, the immigration process can take years. Most people take the legal route to move to a new country; others immigrate illegally.

Korean Dramatic Tradition and Contemporary Practices

Kritika Kultura
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, July 31, 2017

Modern English Drama Association of Korea (MEDAK) invites contributions for a planned collaboration with Kritika Kultura on the Korean dramatic tradition.

As an Asian country, Korea has an Asian identity. It shares much of its historical experiences and cultural background with other Asian nations. However, it is reasonable to say that Korea has more deep-rooted relationships with China and Japan—all together referred to as “East Asia”—than with South-East Asian countries. It is because Korea was historically an isolated kingdom, probably almost never having gone beyond the neighborhood of North-East Asian region. Nevertheless, with globalization, in many ways, Korea has opened itself to the world.
