Art and Ideas: Speaking the Other, Korean Diaspora and Beyond

This course considers the history and possibilities of imagining and representing the Other and the Unknown. It is centered on the close study of films, texts and media, including Yermek Shinarbaev’s Revenge, on the Korean diaspora in central Asia, Susana Aikin’s The Salt Mines, Kpop, texts drawn from critical theory, fiction, and the news. Through experimentations
with various media ranging from writing, storytelling, films and diagrams, students are asked to find ways to bring the unknown to the realm of the familiar, while questioning the merits of this practice.
