CALL FOR APPLICATIONS
APSA-USKI Graduate Publication Seminar October 26-28, 2015 – Washington, DC
The American Political Science Association (APSA) and the U.S.-Korea Institute at SAIS (USKI) are pleased to announce a Call for Applications for PhD students and early-career faculty who would like to participate in a Graduate Publication Seminar in fall 2015. This seminar will be a unique opportunity to advance current individual research towards publication and develop scholarly networks with colleagues doing work on Korea or East Asian politics.
The APSA-USKI Graduate Publication Seminar offers a forum for early-career scholars to discuss and receive critical feedback on an article-length manuscript in progress. Papers will be circulated in advance of the seminar to allow time for thorough reading by all participants and facilitators. In addition to focused discussions of each paper, the seminar program will include a public lecture and professional development session.
The two-day seminar will be hosted by USKI and held on campus at the The Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies, Johns Hopkins University, in Washington, DC. The organizers will cover transportation and accommodation costs for up to 8 qualified applicants. The working language of the workshop is English.
The workshop is targeted at PhD students, post-doctoral fellows, and early-career faculty (those less than 5 years from having earned their PhD) who are currently based at institutions in the United States. Applicants are expected to submit a current manuscript or research project that is at a stage of development which would benefit from intense discussion and critique. Papers from comparative, IR, and theory subfields will be considered, as well as those working within East Asian area studies, so long as it relates to Korea and/or East Asian politics.
Applications must be in English and include:
1. The completed online Application Form.
2. A detailed, recent Curriculum Vitae/resume.
3. The 5,000-8,000 word (including abstract, not including references) research manuscript that will be brought to the seminar for discussion. All topics within political science research will be considered, so long as it relates to Korea and/or East Asian politics. This research should not be a co-authored project, nor should it be an excerpt from an already completed work.
