East Asia as Entangled Memory Space

Organized by: Critical Global Studies Institute (CGSI) & Institute of Social Sciences / Sponsored by: Sogang SK-SUPEX

D101, J302, Sogang University

September 21-23, 2017


Critical Global Studies Institute and Institute of Social Sciences of Sogang University will jointly host the international conference "East Asia as an Entangled Memory Space" from 21 to 23 September 2017.

 

At this gathering we seek to critically examine the diverse realms constituting the "memory regime" of East Asia, from the official memory overseen by the state to the vernacular memory of ordinary people reproduced in daily life.

Critical Global Studies Institute and Institute of Social Sciences of Sogang University will jointly host the international conference "East Asia as an Entangled Memory Space" from 21 to 23 September 2017.

 

At this gathering we seek to critically examine the diverse realms constituting the "memory regime" of East Asia, from the official memory overseen by the state to the vernacular memory of ordinary people reproduced in daily life.



On the opening day, Seok-Jin Lew, director of Institute of Social Sciences, will give a talk titled "East Asia's Digital Memory Space and Online Nationalism" and the visual artist Jane Jin Kaisen will introduce her work "Woman, Orphan, and Tiger" that deals with the memories of an adopted child.



The second day will take up three panel discussions. In the "East Asian Memory Regime in Literature" panel, we will trace the lineage of memories in East Asia and explore the possibilities of working in solidarity through investigation of topics such as East Asia's governmentality and trauma, Third World literary movement and antiwar movement in literature. In the "Rethinking Multilayeredness of Victimhood and Victimization" panel, we will grasp the colonial era resistance movements and minorities and feminism in contemporary Japan in the context of entanglement that goes beyond the duality of victimhood and victimization.  In the "Memory Theories after Mnemonic Turn" panel, based on examination of memory theories and war and post-war narratives we will clarify the forefront of memory studies and sound out its possibility.

In the final day's "Scars and Vernacular Memory of Colonialism" panel, we will deal with the memories of women and sex workers, Zainichi Koreans, and post-war Japan and reconstruct the trauma of colonialism as vernacular memory from below.



The conference will convene at Room 101 Dasan Hall on the 21st and at Room 302 Jeong Hasang Hall on the 22nd and 23rd, respectively.
