Marking the 70th year after Korean liberation from the Japanese colonial rule, the Korea Foundation organized and held the Korean History Workshop for Overseas Doctoral Students in Seoul and Incheon from July 21, 2015 to July 25, 2015 with the aim of promoting research on Korean history and fostering next-generation scholars of Korean history.
