Lecture and Workshop on Korean Romanization
Tuesday, June 5, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
The Presentation Room, Charles E. Young Research Library (11348 YRL), UCLA Library
As part of celebrating UCLA East Asian Library’s 70th anniversary program, the EAL is pleased to present a lecture and workshop on Korean Romanization, led by Mr. Hyoungbae Lee, Korean Studies Librarian at Princeton University.
Since its publication in 1939, McCune-Reischauer (MR) romanization and its variations had been the standard method to transliterate Han'gŭl into Roman alphabets in the world as well as in both Koreas until 2000, when the official system was superseded by the Revised Romanization of Korean in South Korea. The MR system is still mostly used in academia in North America, except in the field of linguistics. The American Library Association-Library of Congress (ALA-LC) Romanization Table for Korean (Korean RT), which is based on MR, has also been used as the standard in the library world.
However, Korean RT is indisputably the most complicated rule book amongst the 75 ALA-LC romanization tables available for different languages or language groups, and it takes most researchers a significant amount of time and effort to master it. This Lecture & Workshop on Korean Romanization is designed to provide the audience with not only an understanding of the issues and theoretical backgrounds related to Korean Romanization (lecture), but also practical training with Korean RT for academic research (workshop).
The lecture & workshop will be conducted in Korean, as all participants are expected to have a working level of Korean language skills.
In the year 2018, the East Asian Library celebrates its 70th Anniversary since its founding in 1948.
