The Research Center for Korean Community

The International Conference

Thursday, October 07, 2010 7:00 PM

Korea Village 150-24 Northern Blvd., Flushing, NY 11358

The International Conference on "Korean Diasporic and Immigrant Communities' Transnational ties to Homeland"

One of the major activities to fulfill the Center’s mission of conducting research on Korean Americans and other overseas Koreans and disseminating data and information to the Korean community and the Korean government is to organize the annual conference on Korean American experiences and overseas Koreans. We plan to alternate the international conference focusing on overseas Koreans all together and the North American conference focusing on Koreans in North America.  We are organizing the international conference focusing on “Korean Diasaporic and Immigrant Communities’ Transnational Ties to Homeland” this year.  The conference will be held at the Open Space of Korea Village on October 8 and 9. Sixteen scholars from Korea, Japan, Canada, and the United States will participate in the conference. We will have a gala on the eve at Daedong Manor of Korea Village, celebrating the first anniversary of the foundation of the Center.  We expect to have about 150 Korean community leaders at the gala.
