Spring 2024
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: WLIT 230, FGSS 230
Course Cluster and Certificates: Social, Cultural, and Critical Theory Certificate

This course welcomes students who are interested in the world of Korean cinema, where we will dive deep into the dynamic intersections of gender and genre from the late 1950s to the present. Students will sharpen their analytical skills and gain a profound understanding of film while critically examining a selection of Korean films. Through engaging guided analysis and discussions, we will explore various perspectives, including auteurism, national cinema, cultural studies, and global genres, to enrich our cinematic experience. Along with these perspectives, we will challenge conventional perceptions of femininity and masculinity while questioning how the Korean nation-state and its ever-evolving sociopolitical landscape have impacted gender and sexuality in cinematic narratives. All films will have English subtitles, all readings will be available in English; no prior knowledge of Korean film, history, or culture required to embark on this exciting cinematic journey.
