Remembering Queer Korea: An International Symposium, Film Festival, and Exhibition

Printer-friendly version
The Transnational Korean Studies Program at University of California San Diego (my current grad school!) is hosting an international symposium, film festival and exhibition titled Remember Queer Korea. Acting Director of the Transnational Korean Studies Program, Todd Henry, is a scholar of modern Korea, currently working on a book on modern queer Korea, and organized the event. There is so much going on during Remembering Queer Korea and if you are in the San Diego area, I highly recommend going.

The lineup for Friday and Saturdays lectures make me almost wish I wasn't in Korea right now. Hopefully, they will be recorded and eventually available online...

Truly an awesome selection of films for the film portion of the program (run in tandem with the San Diego Asian Film Festival) including the fantastic The Girl Princes

Finally, the exhibition displays the work of artist siren eun young jung
