This course examines the transformation of Korean society beginning around the turn of the 20th century to contemporary times. In particular, it explores how shifting categories of masculinity, and by contrast, femininity have impacted upon, and in turn been influenced by social, cultural, and political change. Using multiple disciplinary lenses, we will critically examine how gender intersects with political, social, and economic developments starting with the Confucianization of Korean society during the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910) up to the contemporary moment of globalization and neoliberal reform. The class will draw on a variety of topics such as traditional views of women, religion, race, class, education, patriarchy, sexuality, imperialism, modernity, war, globalization, the diaspora, among others. Special attention will be placed on the historical, transnational and transdisciplinary connections.

Excellent information, especially the historical background of Korea and its influence on societal culture.
I thought this was interesting, covering a wide range of topics that I knew little about! There were many reading references, and some interesting historical perspectives.
Very interesting course, could be improved by some work on the subtitling.
This is the best course ever. I would like to recommend for those who want to know more and learn about the Korean culture in depth:)
