COLT 55.02 Mapping Korean Literature: World Literatures and National Contexts

This course provides students with a translational and transcultural view of modern and postmodern Korean literature through the key texts by important Korean writers, as well as the Chinese, Japanese, and Western writers who influenced them. While reading short stories, poems, novels, and critical essays, we will consider the following questions: How can we rethink Korean literature and culture in a world perspective?; How can the recent turn toward “Global Korea” reshape our ways of approaching modern Korean literature? Topics will include the colonial modernity and negotiations of Korean identities; post-independence and the role of arts in democratic change; economic growth, transnational aspirations, and literature in the spirit of global citizenship.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
