How have writers and film directors responded to the rapid transformation of Korean society? In what ways have their works shaped the experience of Koreans? This course examines Korean literature and film’s representation on the diverse political and social changes that have occurred on the Korean Peninsula in the modern era. Paying special attention to how gender, class, ethnicity, and generation construct one’s sense of the nation and the self, students will gain an understanding of the everyday lives of the Koreans under stressful modernization and tumultuous political shifts, and its literary and cinematic way of dramatization on them.
