Aims and Scope
Korean Language & Literature Synthesis Society with 50 Years of Tradition
〔Korean Language & Literature〕 association was established in 1965 with the aim of "deepening and revitalizing academic research in the region."
At that time, we gathered various research groups and research activities that had been maintained in the form of small academic gatherings in the nature of seminars to lay the regional and institutional foundation for Korean language and literature research.
Korean Language & Literature, which began like this, has now become a nationwide academic organization involving researchers from the Seoul metropolitan area and across the country as well as Honam region, including North and South Jeolla Province.
Publishing <Korean Language and Literature>, rooted in the region and oriented toward the world
Since its foundation in March 1965, it has consistently published <Korean Language Literature>.
<Korean Language Literature> is a national academic journal that expands the field of activities of Korean language and literature, which is concentrated in the center, and promotes regionalism while interacting with researchers nationwide. <Korean Language Literature> consistently publishes the results of in-depth research linking the field of Korean language and literature with local culture.
These activities can contribute to researching Korean language and literature in Jeollabuk-do and returning it to the local community.
A comprehensive and convergent academic organization
<Korean Language Literature> has published articles on Korean language and literature since the beginning.
Currently, it is divided into Korean language, modern literature, classical literature, and Korean language education. This personality as a comprehensive academic journal contributes to the academic convergence of Korean literature in the central research climate, where academic and academic research are fragmented according to the detailed major of Korean literature. Especially in the case of regions, a comprehensive academic journal is an alternative to theoretically solving local special issues and overcoming various limitations. The multidisciplinary tendency of the journal is also a reflection of the demands of the times of interdisciplinary research, multiculturalism and integration. 〔Korean Language & Literature〕 using this multidisciplinary tendency, we held several academic conferences to approach Korean, modern literature, and pedagogy as one subject.
In the future, 〔Korean Language & Literature〕 will focus on deepening research on cultural materials and assets related to Korean language and literature in the region, organizing the results of the research, and linking them to the local community to utilize the results and revitalize local culture.
