The Korean Language Program at the University of Pennsylvania (Penn) is pleased to announce that the American Association of Teachers of Korean (AATK)’s 28th Annual Conference and Professional Workshop will take place on June 15-17, 2023, at Penn. The theme of the 28th conference is ‘Transformative Language Learning Through Real World Engagement’. With this theme, the conference aims to provide a forum for Korean language students through constructive discussions about transformative learning and its extension to the real world. In particular, the conference will investigate and address topics related to transformative teaching and learning in the Korean language by asking the following timely questions:

  • How can transformative language learning and teaching be operationalized in the Korean language classroom and curriculum?
  • What opportunities for experiential language learning can be implemented to promote a sense of responsible agency in society?
  • How can Korean language content and materials be used to challenge views and encourage critical thinking for social justice?
  • How can we bring real-world engagement to language learners through classroom practices?
  • How might transformative language teaching and learning help students develop competencies more effectively for career readiness in Korean communities?

We invite participants to explore and address these areas of interest to foster an engaging and enriching experience.

Conference Chair: Hi-Sun Kim, Harvard University

Local Chair: Haewon Cho, University of Pennsylvania

Ginseng is known and used in many ways by Korean and Korean American families. In this program, Korean American chefs Yesoon Lee and her son Danny Lee—who separately own and operate several popular restaurants in the Washington, D.C., area, including Mandu, Chiko, and Anju—will prepare and talk about one beloved dish and its significance to the Korean American community.

Samgyetang is a traditional Korean ginseng chicken soup which is eaten for its rich flavor and healthful properties in the heat of the summer. Yesoon will prepare a more traditional version of the soup, while Danny will prepare a contemporary take on the dish using his mother’s samgyetang, similar to a dish he serves at Anju. They will discuss the tradition behind the soup, their own cooking experiences, and how Korean Americans use ginseng in other ways. Folklife researcher Grace Dahye Kwon will moderate the conversation.
