Generations: A Century of Modern Korean Literature

The 20th annual HMS Colloquium celebrates a century of Modern Korean Literature. Distinguished scholars and prize-winning authors will discuss Korean literature that has flourished through the tumultuous history of modern Korea. The highlight of this year's event is a dialog between literary scholars, prominent authors, and the Washington audience. On the eve of the Colloquium, the Korean authors will speak at a special event provided at the Korean Cultural Center of the Korean Embassy.*

The HMS Colloquium series provides a forum for academic discussion of Korean humanities in the context of East Asia and the world. The series was created by an endowment established by the estate of Hahn Moo-Sook, one of Korea’s most honored writers, to uphold her spirit of openness, curiosity and commitment to education. The 20th HMS colloquium is co-organized with the Literature Translation Institute of Korea and co-sponsored by GW’s Columbian College of Arts and Sciences, Department of East Asian Languages and Literatures, Sigur Center for Asian Studies, Institute for Ethnographic Research, and the Korean Cultural Center of the Korean Embassy.
