DESCRIPTION

Korean popular culture is arguably one of South Korea’s most impactful exports, reaching a worldwide audience of devoted fans through strategic marketization. From music, film, television, sports to food, the “Korean Wave” (Hallyu) has generated revenue and reshaped the topography of the global cultural landscape. This year's Colloquium focuses on the K-Pop industry, the contemporary style of Korean pop music that has become popular in many countries around the world. The speakers will examine diverse aspects of K-Pop: state-initiated efforts to employ the Korean Wave as a currency of soft power, corporate infrastructure, global fan practices that contribute to the transnational flow of popular culture, cultural appropriation, the production of idols, and the connections between K-Pop and Korean diasporic as well as other non-Korean communities.

 

BACKGROUND

The Hahn Moo-Sook Colloquium in the Korean Humanities Series at GW provides a forum for academic discussion of Korean arts, history, language, literature, thought and religious systems in the context of East Asia and the world. The colloquium series is made possible by an endowment established by the estate of Hahn Moo-Sook (1918-1993), one of Korea’s most honored writers, to uphold her spirit of openness, curiosity, and commitment to education. The 27th Hahn Moo-Sook colloquium is co-organized by GW’s Department of East Asian Languages and Literatures and the Institute for Korean Studies, and co-sponsored by Korea Foundation, and GW’s Sigur Center for Asian Studies.
