Course Description

This is a course about contemporary social and political life in urban South Korea. It focuses on present conditions and their historical background: on capitalism and development from the colonial era (1910-1945) to the present, on the perspectives of workers, white-collar employees, and students over time, on the lifestyles of the new ethnographies of corporations, factory work, consumption, and activism, as well as accounts of popular culture and changing gender systems and roles. We will also watch several recent films and examine other visual materials.
