Aloha,
The
Center for Korean Studies will hold a conference this week, and we would
appreciate it if you would pass this information on to faculty and students in
Korean studies.

Center for Korean Studies hosts conference on colonial Korea on Feb. 16-17,
2012

The Center for
Korean Studies at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa will hold a conference
titled “Tapestry of Modernity: Urban Cultural Landscapes of Colonial Korea,
1920s-1930s," on February 16-17, 2012, at the Center for Korean Studies
Auditorium.

Within the
conceptual framework of multiple modernities, this conference will explore
multi-layered arrays of Korean modernity by looking at different areas in
society and culture that went through a metamorphosis as Korea reinvented itself
as a modern state-nation during the colonial period. Individual conference
papers will explore various forms of selectivity, creativity, inventiveness,
imaginary resourcefulness, and visions of Koreans engaged in crafting their own
brands of modernity.

The focus of the
conference will be the cultural modernity projects nurtured and cultivated in
the urban setting of Korea in the decades of the 1920s and the 1930s, when such
modern transformation was most vigorously pursued and propagated and its
achievements most visible and vibrant.
