Manuscript Review for Hyun Seon Park

Korean Modernism at the Margin: Visualizing Affect, Body, and Exteriority in Korean Literature and Film

Date:

Friday, April 19, 2013

Description:

Hyun Seon Park is an Academy of Korean Studies and 2012-2013 USC KSI postdoctoral scholar (Ph.D. in East Asian Cultural Studies, UC Irvine).

Korean Modernism at the Margin: Visualizing Affect, Body, and Exteriority in Korean Literature and Film investigates the political and aesthetic trajectory of Korean modernism. Considering modernist texts as a problematic site where history, aesthetics, and politics juxtapose, this project engages key moments of Korean modern history from the colonial period, through the postwar era of urban modernization in 1960s, to the post-IMF bailout period of the late 1990s and early 2000s.

Manuscript discussants include Theodore Hughes, Korea Foundation Associate Professor of Korean Studies in the Humanities, Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures at Columbia University, and Suk-Young Kim, Associate Professor of Theatre and Dance at UC Santa Barbara.

Graduate students and faculty from USC are welcome to attend. All attendees must read the manuscript prior to the event. To secure your spot and request a copy of the manuscript, please RSVP to ksi@usc.edu by March 20, 2013.
