Boston University has been awarded a grant from the Korea Foundation to support the establishment of a new professorship in Korean and Comparative Literature. The position will be a tenure-track assistant professorship in the Department of Modern Languages and Comparative Literature, and a search is currently underway for a scholar and teacher to begin at Boston University in Fall 2011. Currently, MLCL offers four years of Korean language and a course in Korean cinema. The new position will build on this curriculum to offer courses in Korean literature and comparative literary studies that will serve our concentrations in East Asian Studies and in Comparative Literature as well as opening the door for a concentration in Korean language and literature.
For further information, please contact Sarah Frederick in the Department of Modern Languages and Comparative Literature.
