Call for Papers (Korea Program at Stanford)

Koret Conference on “Globalization, Innovation, and Culture in Korea”

The Korea Program, Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center, Stanford University, CA
April 22, 2016.

The Korea Program at Stanford University is soliciting papers for the Koret Conference on Globalization, Innovation, and Culture in Korea at Stanford University. South Korea has become an economic powerhouse but faces multiple challenges.  To maintain its dynamism and growth in the increasingly innovation-driven global knowledge economy of the 21st century, Korea needs to turn its attention to the more social, cultural and educational aspects of development. Of paramount importance is the ability to welcome and embrace difference and creativity, upgrade pertinent social values of cultural diversity and social tolerance, promote innovation and effectively reflect and transmit such values through institutions. The conference will be interdisciplinary, problem-oriented, and policy-relevant. We welcome a broad range of questions and approaches that address the main challenges Korea will face going forward. Possible research topics include:

  • Higher education, cultural diversity and development
  • Social cohesion beyond nationalism and multiculturalism
  • Entrepreneurial culture and innovation
  • Causes and consequences of rising inequality.
  • Demographic changes, skilled foreign labor and education/work culture

The conference will be held on April 22, 2016 at Stanford University. Besides research presentation, the conference also aims to foster new connections among scholars with common interests. Travel (domestic or international economy class) and hotel costs as well as modest honorarium will be covered for the presenters.

If you are interested in presenting a paper at the meeting, please send the paper (6,000-8,000 words) in a pdf file to Yong Suk Lee at
