2025 IKSU Annual International Conference Call For Papers – The Korean Peninsula and Other Divided Nations

The International Institute of Korean Studies (IKSU) is inviting scholars whose research focuses on the issues related to the Korean peninsula, including other divided nations and the implications for the Korean peninsula. This is a widely open topic, and we particularly welcome research projects that are based on the interdisciplinary approach. The disciplinary areas can include peace studies, international relations, diplomacy, anthropology, sociology, development studies, politics, film studies, literature, history, linguistics, migration, gender studies, cultural studies, education, psychology, and conflict studies, but are not limited to.
After the conference, an edited volume will be published, and a special issue journal may also follow, depending on the number of participants. Not only established academics at different stages but also early career scholars—including postdoctoral researchers—and PhD candidates in relevant fields are encouraged to submit.
We plan to hold the 2025 IKSU Annual International Conference at the University’s Cyprus campus, located in Pyla, Cyprus. The university accommodation (shared spaces) can be provided unless the participant wants to seek his/her own accommodation. We may provide partial financial support for flight costs for selected PhD candidates. After the conference, we will have a ‘Peace Walk’ in Nicosia (visiting both northern and southern sections).
