How does Korea’s tumultuous history affect women’s lives on the Korean screen? This class aims to foster a comprehensive and critical understanding of the ways in which Korean women's roles and representations have changed in cinema from the colonial era to the present. We will raise questions related to changed notion of womanhood, women’s sexuality, and political and national allegory surrounding the female body. Through the textual analyses, students will interrogate how female agency joins, challenges, rejects, or remains indifferent to the national concerns of Korea as it moves from being underdeveloped and traditional towards being modernized and globalized.
