Towards Sustainable Development of Slavic-Eurasian Studies in Northeast Asia during Crises
The IREEES at SNU and the SRC at HU are planning to host a joint mini-conference dedicated to the current state and prospects of Slavic-Eurasian studies, with a particular focus on the implications of the Russo-Ukrainian war. This collaborative event serves two primary objectives.
First, it aims to revive the academic partnership between these two leading organizations for Slavic Studies in Korea and Japan. In the past, the IREEES and the SRC maintained a fruitful collaborative relationship, regularly organizing joint events. However, this practice was discontinued at some point. By organizing this conference, we seek to reignite productive cooperation between Korean and Japanese Slavists.
Second, this event aims to create a platform for researchers to exchange diverse perspectives on current issues in the Slavic-Eurasian regions, such as the ongoing Russo-Ukrainian crisis. Slavic-Eurasian countries have become significant neighbors for Korea and Japan, and there is a growing need for rigorous research in this domain. This mini-conference will provide an exceptional opportunity for researchers to gain insights into the political, economic, and social challenges these regions present. By doing so, it will promote a deeper understanding of the ways in which Korea and Japan engage with these regions.
