Queer Lives as Cautionary Tales: Female Same-Sex Weddings in the Hetero-Patriarchal Imagination of Authoritarian South Korea

Thursday, November 16 at 4:00pm to 6:00pm

Social Sciences Building (SOS), 250
3502 Trousdale Parkway, Los Angeles, CA 90089

Part of larger book project, this presentation examines the role that newspaper weeklies (chuganji) played in establishing the normative boundaries of cultural citizenship in Cold War South Korea. A particular focus is on the ideological work that textual and visual representations of female homoeroticism did in entertaining a variety of audiences as part of "mass dictatorship,” while simultaneously imbuing them with the developmentalist ideologies of hetero-patriarchy and ethnonationalism.
