Dear EASP members,

This is a follow-up notice regarding the upcoming deadline of abstract submission in a week (March 13, Sunday). Please have your abstract ready and submit on time. A couple of important updates as below.

  1. Keynote Speakers

As you know, for this year, the 13th EASP conference will take place at Ewha Womans’ University in Seoul, South Korea, between July 1-2. The EASP committee and the host party decide to invite the 4 distinguished keynote speakers. The unique aspect of the keynote speeches is that all FEMALE speakers will deliver/share their focal research areas within gender, social policy, and East Asia. The specifics are below.

  • Prof. Mari Miura: Sophia University, Japan
  • Prof. Joohee Lee: Ewha Womans’ University, S. Korea
  • Prof. Misa Izuhara: University of Bristol, UK
  • Prof. Da-young Song: Incheon National University, S. Korea
  1. Registration Fee

No registration fee for this year. The fee will be fully covered by the host party and sponsors (Big appreciation towards the host party, especially Prof. Sophia Lee).

  1. Flyer Dissemination

You can find A separate flyer including conference details (location, speakers, organizing committee) here: EASP 13th ANNUAL CONFERENCE FLYER

  1. Travel Information

After reviewing all submitted abstracts and notifying acceptance/denial, I am sure that further explanation containing travel information (e.g., accommodation, transportation, etc) will be shared by the host party within a month or so.

Thanks in advance for your concern and participation for the 13th EASP conference. Look forward to seeing many of you in Seoul this Summer.


Bum Jung Kim (Secretary of EASP)
