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.
