35. Compressed Modernity in Perspective: South Korean Instances and Beyond

You are cordially invited to the 35th Kyujanggak colloquium. Our speaker is Prof. Kyungsup Jang (Seoul National University), and the topic of his presentation is "Compressed Modernity in Perspective: South Korean Instances and Beyond" Date: Thursday 24 Sep. 2009, 16:00-18:00Venue: Conference room 112, Kyujanggak Institute for Korean Studies AbstractIn a rapidly increasing body of international research on South Korea (and East Asia), the concept of compressed modernity has been adopted as a core theoretical tool for framing research questions and organizing empirical findings. In this paper, I intend to present a formal configuration of compressed modernity and compare its theoretical logic with some of the major theoretical perspectives on modernity (and postmodernity) in international scholarship. I also delineate various levels/units of practical manifestation of compressed modernity. Then, South Korean experiences are brought in to explicate various dimensions of compressed modernity and to explore various historical and structural conditions for its emergence. Finally, I discuss the historical and international relevance of compressed modernity beyond the South Korean context.

 
34. Memory, History, and Hero Production—A Case from P’yŏngan Province

You are cordially invited to the 34th Kyujanggak colloquium. Our speaker is Prof. Sunjoo Kim (Havard University), and the topic of her presentation is "Memory, History, and Hero Production—A Case from P’yŏngan Province" Date: Tuesday 21 Jul. 2009, 16:00-18:00Venue: Conference room 112, Kyujanggak Institute for Korean Studies AbstractNumerous scholarly works on “memory projects” as the culture and politics of nation-states in the modern world have been produced. Yet remaking of the past is not the monopoly of modernity. This paper investigates the problem of engineering memory in Chosŏn Korea. In particular, I examine the emergence of new cultural imagery built by the state and its “national” elites to legitimate the state’s rule and its position in the changing environment of East Asia. This “national” project involved intellectual movements to revisit and rewrite Chosŏn Korea’s historical past. At the same time, I explore the construction of cultural identity by local elites in their efforts to claim that they shared a common cultural ancestry with the central elites. Their efforts were manifested through various cultural projects, such as compiling and publishing local histories, biographies, and genealogies, enshrining local cultural heroes in private academies, and erecting commemorative steles and halls. I analyze the processes of inventing, commemorating, and enshrining “public memory”—and the historical and cultural contexts in which such processes took place—through the case of Kim Kyŏngsŏ, a commanding general during the Ming-Chosŏn joint war against the rising Jurchen in 1619.
