The Center for Korean Research, Columbia University and the Center for
Korean Visual Culture, Yonsei University invite proposals for presentation
at a conference titled "Korea, Media, Archive: Rethinking Optics." The
Conference will take place at Columbia University, 918 International Affairs
Building, May 12 - 13, 2017. 


The organizers seek to convene a review and rethinking of mediated visuality
in modern Korea. The conference begins with the assumption that new forms of
seeing arose in confrontation with successive cultural and political forces
(Japanese colonial, Soviet communist, American liberal capitalist, global
neoliberal) and the advent of new technologies. We seek to investigate the
impact of technologically and politically transformed ways of seeing on both
the subjectivity of the viewer and the appearance of the viewed. Toward
these ends, the conference maps out three broad and interrelated dimensions
of mediated visuality in modern Korea: media archaeology, the lasting
effects of the Cold War, and the idea of cosmopolitanism. While its concerns
are grounded in the Korean 20th century, the intellectual scope of the
conference must of necessity expand its vision to regional and
intercontinental practices. 


Please submit a 300-word abstract and a brief biographical note by January
10, 2017, to Steven Chung ( <mailto:sychung at princeton.edu)>
sychung at princeton.edu) and Hyun Seon Park ( <mailto:hyunstime at yonsei.ac.kr)>
