This course introduces students to the history of modern and contemporary Korean through major events. Why do some events capture our imagination? Why do some events become “spectacular history.” Among other things, we will examine Korea’s modernization, colonialism, wars, nation-building, dissident movements, and cold-war division. For each topic, we will choose an event, and take a close look at how it took place (history) and how it was represented in texts and visual media (spectacular history). By looking at the processes through which experiences were transformed into spectacular images, we will try to gain better understanding of the times as well as how representation and memory write history. No prior knowledge of Korea or Korean language necessary.
