National Meetings of the Korean Archaeological Society 韓國考古學會 全國 大會 패널
Name of Panel: Global Perspectives on the Archaeology of Korea
Outside of Korea, the number of graduate students, young researchers, and established scholars who conduct research on Early Korea has never formally been assessed, but it numbers at least 50 individuals worldwide. Among these scholars, most work in the field of archaeology and many work in hybrid fields related to archaeology and material cultural studies, early and ancient history, art history, linguistics, and heritage studies. Many of these scholars look at the Korean peninsula in the context of Northeast Asia. The interest in Early Korea is a relatively recent phenomenon and partly has its origins in the efforts of the Early Korea Project at Harvard University (2006-2018). The new president of the KAS, Professor Lee Chungkyu of Yeungnam University, recognizes the necessity to continuously foster and support the scholarly interest in Korean archaeology and Early Korean studies outside of Korea. Lee and the KAS strongly encourage this effort to invite those from overseas along with those with native languages other than Korean to come and participate actively in the conference in what is perhaps the first effort to provide such a forum for scholarly communication by a scholarly society in Korea.
