Seeking academics and experts - Seoul
« on: July 26, 2017, 08:19:46 pm »
We are a very different sort of travel company: we work with local scholars and experts to create theme-based walking tours or "walking seminars" (6 people max) in 41 major cities worldwide. From Montreal to Rome to Tokyo to Sydney, we have a host of architects, historians, food writers, ecologists, archaeologists and such showing, in-depth, intellectually curious clients their cities. We are currently looking to expand our pool of experts in Seoul as we launch before Fall. Our docents work on a freelance basis, according to their schedules and expertise.

We welcome individuals with the following expertise:

Art

Art history

Architecture and urbanists

Korean Food & Cuisine

Religious experts

Historians

Korean popular culture

South Korean generalists

The groups are small (6 people max), the clients tend to be from Canada, the UK, Australia or the U.S. and the idea is that these walks are in-depth explorations of a topic, not a scripted "tour" in the traditional sense. If you are an expert (MA or Ph.D.) in any of the above disciplines and live or will be residing for at least six months, in Seoul, feel free to send us your CV and an introduction to your field of expertise. Other specialties are welcome to apply. Licensed guides encouraged.
