About the Korea Hub
The Korean Studies Research Hub (a.k.a. Korea Hub) is an inter-disciplinary virtual hub for collaborative research and networks on Korea at the University of Melbourne. Established in December 2020 with generous funding from the Academy of Korean Studies, the Korea Hub is designed to promote local and international collaborations on contemporary Korean affairs and Australia-Korea relations. Our activities include undertaking team-based research projects, hosting high-profile speakers and visiting scholars, running seminar series and workshops, and fostering graduate research.
Acting as a central venue within the University for Korea-related engagement, the Korea Hub is dedicated to enhancing the public profile of world-class researchers in arts and social sciences, business, visual art and engineering at the University of Melbourne, pursuing innovative high-impact research and building international partnerships. The Korea Hub welcomes students, early career researchers and practitioners who work on Korea-related subjects through the following programmes:
- PhD supervision and career mentorship
- Scholarships for graduate research
- Korean Studies Seminar Series and Annual Graduate Workshops
- Regular K-film nights and K-Book Club
- Korean Collection at the University Library
The Korean Studies Research Hub (KSRH) acknowledges the Wurundjeri and Boonwurrung Peoples of the Kulin Nation as the traditional owners of the unceded land on which the University stands, and pay respect to Elders past, present, and emerging.
