This interdisciplinary course will explore important issues of gender and class in South Korea through empirical, fictional and theoretical readings that deal with the issue. This course will approach gender and class not as descriptive but as analytic categories in order to understand how these intersecting categories have shaped power relations in Korean society. It will also incorporate a chronological perspective in its thematic clusters of reading: the readings will capture some of the insights that emerged from conversations and debates about how to understand gender and class in a variety of social-historical locations throughout the twentieth century.
