On Saturday, May 22, 2021, the Situations journal
conference, entitled “Between Asia and Europe: Whither Comparative Cultural Studies?”, was successfully concluded. The conference was supposed to take place in Ljubljana, but had to be moved to Zoom.
The conference participants were addressed by, among others, the Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences, prof. dr. Monika Kalin Golob, who, also on behalf of the Dean of the Faculty of Arts, prof. dr. Roman Kuhar, emphasized the importance of the conference for the interdisciplinary study of East Asia and expressed the hope that in the future it would be organized live in Ljubljana. On the part of Yonsei University, co-organizers of the event, Professors Suk Koo Rhee and Terry Murphy expressed their joy that at least in this way we managed to bring experts from Slovenia closer to colleagues from other parts of the world, with special thanks to assoc. prof. dr. Aljoša Pužar from the Faculty of Social Sciences. Nevertheless, the participants expressed their satisfaction with the cooperation between EARL and Yonsei University in this project, and concrete proposals for further cooperation have already been made among them.
