The Koreanist who is also a Southeast Asianist: On being a paper presenter at the Bridges to Southeast Asia Workshop in Ateneo de Manila University

Congratulations is still not in order, grad school-wise, but I’d like to believe I’m getting there. I’m done with all my coursework, albeit with a couple of “wrinkles” I failed to manage to iron out into an A…or even an A-.
