Autumn in Málaga! Prepping for the KSGSC…

I’m happy to announce that my paper about fragments of Korean music in Berlin, Germany was accepted at the 12th Korean Studies Graduate Students Convention (KSGSC) which is being funded by the Korea Foundation and hosted by the University of Málaga, Spain this year.

I’m looking forward to listen to the latest research and to explore Málaga (I’m staying for an extra day)… a friend told me, that autumn in Málaga should be beautiful, so I hope I’ll be able to get the best of both worlds, science and a one day holiday ;-)

Vortrag in Leipzig / Presentation in Leipzig

My last presentation about Korean Pansori was at the Institute of Music (Hmt Leipzig) in Leipzig, presenting about the musical genre I’m passionate about and being able to talk about my PhD topic was fun and “refreshing”.

I always get a boost and motivation after a talk ;)
Now, I’m off to write & read…
