The Association for Korean Studies in Europe (AKSE) plans to award a new prize, the
Hendrik-Hamel-Prize for Korean Studies research published in Europe. The prize will be
awarded every second year, the winner being announced at a AKSE conference. The prize
carries a € 2000 cash award. In 2021, the prize will be awarded for Korean Studies
publications in a European language other than English.
We are calling for nominations of scholarly articles or monographs centring on Korea which
have been published during the last five years and are apt to raise interest in the academic
study of Korea beyond the confines of Korean Studies proper. Only original work is eligible.
Dissertations, exhibition catalogues, translations, textbooks, poetry, fiction, travel books,
memoirs or autobiographies are not eligible.
Nominated authors need not be AKSE members. Nominators should preferably be AKSE
members and have to hold (or be retired from) an academic position, or be otherwise an
established member of the academic community.
Self-nominations are possible, but less desirable.
Nominations including a pdf of the original publication, an English language abstract of at
least 200 words, and a completed nomination form (to be found separately on the AKSE
website www.koreanstudies.eu) must reach the AKSE president by April 30, 2021, to be
considered for the 2021 award.
Please send all documents to both of the following e-mail addresses: email@example.com;
