Credits: 3

The course engages with the ever-growing field of Korean cinema and television studies as we examine contemporary film and serialized K-drama across diverse genres from science fiction to horror to romance to road movies. Drawing from media and cinema studies, Korean Studies, Asian American Studies, and other related fields, our study of Korean film and TV interrogates race, gender, nation, ability and class with attention to media specificity and historiography. Some guiding questions include: How does engagement with genre enable a transgressive consideration of class, gender, and queerness? What is the role of language, such as subtitling and transpacific distribution in the reception of Korean cinema and television transnationally? How does Korean cinema and TV drama shape new directions in media studies, Korean Studies, ethnic studies, gender and sexuality studies, and other fields? By the end of the course, students will have a better understanding of the history and complexity of varied currents in Korean film and TV and will be able to critically read, analyze, and write about Korean film and television from a variety of perspectives.
