COURSE OBJECTIVE:

Since the end of the Second World War, Korea has undergone rapid modernisation and radical social transformation. These changes, while contributing to the nation’s prosperity, have also created a number of serious problems. The aim of this course is to examine major social, political and cultural issues in contemporary Korea. The discussion topics include the changing family, gender and class relations, the division of the country, the emergence and development of the two states, changes in social structure and the democratisation of society, and the debate surrounding the unification of the two Koreas. Based on the discussions, various aspects of social and cultural change will also be introduced as they are portrayed by Koreans themselves in film and literature in reconstructing their post-colonial identity, namely: characteristics of art and literature; dynamics of popular cultures; and the changing value systems. There are four central issues: modernity and tradition; globalisation and isolationism; the representation of gender and nationalism; and anti-Americanism and post-colonialism. This course aims to provide a broad yet concise analysis of contemporary Korea from a cultural perspective.
