Korea Seminar: Sonia Ryang

Mon, September 14, 2009 • 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM • Meyerson Conference Room, WCH 4.118

A Letter From Afar: A Story of Repatriation and Exile

Through an examination of a woman's letter for a friend repatriated in the late 1970s, social anthropologist Sonia Ryang will present the complex case of Koreans in Japan who were once strongly associated with North Korea. This story will show how human lives have been and continue to be treated with disrespect not simply because of abuse or oppression but because of historical events (in this case the Cold War in Asia) that left so many unresolved cases and people who have to carry on living despite them.
