Korean Studies Dissertation Reviews

It is with great pleasure that we announce the forthcoming launch of “Korean Studies Dissertation Reviews,” set to go live in Fall 2011. In the tradition of CHDR, the new site will feature friendly, non-critical overviews of recently defended, unpublished dissertations in Korean Studies, including dissertations in the social sciences and history. More than ten dissertations are currently under review, with more to come.
