The Fulbright Forums serve as periodic gatherings for the Fulbright family at large, including past and present grantees and friends of the Korean-American Educational Commission (KAEC).
Forums highlight the research and work of Fulbright grantees and offer the public a glimpse at current issues in Korean Studies and Korea-U.S. relations.
While a Forum may not be representative of the direction of the presenting grantee’s future research or career path, it gives them an opportunity to share with the community a small part of their work in the context of their experience in Korea.
The anticipated dates and presentation topics of each Forum in the 2018-2019 Series are as follows:
