In the first collaboration between faculty in the humanities at Yale and South Korea’s Ewha Womans University, a group of scholars from the United States, Korea, Japan and Canada will present talks on Korean art, literature and film in Korea from 1910 to 1945 on the Ewha campus in Seoul on July 11-12, 2014. Yale participants Daniel Botsman (History), Aaron Gerow (East Asian Languages & Literatures/Film Studies), Youn-mi Kim (History of Art), John Treat (East Asian Languages & Literatures), and recent Yale Ph.D. Naoki Yamamoto (Film Studies, University of California, Santa Barbara) will join others in discussing the culture of Korea under Japanese occupation before and during the Second World War. Support for this conference comes from both the Ewha Institute for the Humanities and Yale’s Council on East Asian Studies. This inaugural collaboration has been spearheaded by Ewha’s Vice-President in the Office of International Affairs (and Yale alumna) Eunice Kim, and Yale’s Professor Emeritus of East Asian Languages & Literatures John Treat, who is teaching at Ewha this year.
