BLURB: For over 60 years, Australia and the Republic of Korea have enjoyed close diplomatic, economic, security, and cultural ties. This is a relationship forged on the battlefields of the 1950 -1953 Korean War, and in 2014 it was further strengthened by the Korea-Australia Free Trade Agreement. The 12th Korean Studies Association of Australasia 2021 Biennial Conference and the 6th 2021 KSAA Postgraduate Workshop aims to celebrate 60 years of amicable relations between the two countries. The conference and workshop will bring together Korea experts, students and scholars from all over the world; it will include three days of debate and discussion on Korean history, society, politics, and culture.
