The Korea Institute is delighted to welcome two new Board members from 2020 for a three-year term.
Dr Eunseon Kim is the new Convenor of the Korean Language Program at the ANU. Dr Kim is interested in language ideology, the history of linguistic thought, and metalinguistic discourses, with a particular emphasis on Korean linguistic etiquette. Her research explores how speakers shape the cultural values of language in society and her doctoral dissertation traced the historical construction of the prevalent Korean language ideology of Korean honorifics as the hallmark of hierarchy. We are delighted to welcome this linguistic historian to the ANU.

He is Director of the Australia-Japan Research Centre, Editor of the East Asia Forum, Director of the East Asian Bureau of Economic Research as well as Research Associate at the Center on Japanese Economy and Business at the Columbia Business School. We are delighted to welcome Associate Professor Armstrong to the Board.
