The GWIKS Lecture Series invites leading scholars to the George Washington University from universities around the country throughout the year to share their groundbreaking academic research in the field of Korean studies. The Lecture Series represents an essential element of the vibrant academic culture of the GW Institute for Korean Studies.

GWIKS Signature Conference is held annually on different themes, bringing together experts and scholars from around the world to present their research and engage in lively discussions.

Korean Studies Workshop is held annually to discuss Korean studies development in the U.S. and share work-in-progress papers among scholars in the greater D.C. area.

The Hahn Moo-Sook Colloquium in the Korean Humanities Series at The George Washington University provides a forum for academic discussion of Korean arts, history, language, literature, thought and religious systems in the context of East Asia and the world.  The Colloquium series is made possible by an endowment established by the estate of Hahn Moo-Sook (1918-1993), one of Korea’s most honored writers, in order to uphold her spirit of openness, curiosity, and commitment to education. It has brought some of the foremost Korean writers and artists as well as prominent Korea experts to GW for more than two decades.
