During a pandemic, accurate public health information on COVID-19 is a necessity. But with most of the information on the viral disease and the government’s response published only in Filipino and English, how do we make sure that people in the different regions and those belonging to different ethnolinguistic groups can access this information? Enter the UP Department of Linguistics and the Language Warriors PH project.
Organized by the UP Korea Research Center and UP Department of Linguistics, the 6th Philippine Korean Studies Symposium focused on promoting academic research on Korea-related studies by Filipino scholars here and abroad, strengthening Korean studies as area studies, and developing networks with both local and international institutions.
With the theme, “Establishing Korean Studies as an Instrument for Development”, the 5th Philippine Korean Studies Symposium (PKSS) was held at the NISMED Auditorium in UP Diliman on November 9-10, 2017.
