USC Dornsife Program to Give Ph.D. Students Chance to Discuss Emerging U.S.-Asia Issues

University of Southern California’s (USC) Dornsife College of Letters, Arts, and Science has launched an interdisciplinary predoctoral exchange program to give young scholars studying international relations, history, or economics the opportunity to collaborate with peers and receive mentoring. The initiative, supported by the Charles Koch Foundation, builds on USC’s reputation as a global leader in U.S. international relations focused on East Asia.

Dornsife Divisional Dean of Social Sciences Andrew Lakoff said, “[T]his initiative and the research undertaken at the USC Korean Studies Institute (KSI) will have a direct and important impact on U.S.-East Asian relations and will enable the program to grow to meet the need for new answers that address emerging challenges.”

Korean Studies Institute Director David Kang and Dornsife School of International Relations assistant professor Jonathan Markowitz will direct the program. In addition to offering Ph.D. students from around the country the opportunity to interact about research and scholarship, the program will host conferences, workshops, and other programs. Charles Koch Foundation Executive Vice President Ryan Stowers said, “The national conversation on foreign policy benefits when additional scholars from diverse disciplines engage.”
