South Korea - The Art of Korean Stories

South Korea - The Art of Korean Stories

Summer 2014

Course No:

ENG 486

Dates:

June 7, 2014 - June 29, 2014

Course Objectives:

In this course we will explore the explosion of the "Korean Wave" and how Korean culture is being shared through methods of storytelling. Through short stories and television dramas, Korean culture has become popular, especially among high school and college-age Americans. We will read contemporary short stories and watch segments of Korean dramas (known as kdramas) as well as visit sites in Korea that are referenced in the satires and dramas. Koreans take their culture and history seriously and take great pride in the accurate depictions of historical events, sites and clothing in their stories and dramas. We will examine the juxtaposition of past and current events, how they factor into the stories and dramas, how they impact the audience and what the audience's expectations are.
