    The Magical Language of Others with E.J. Koh

    The Magical Language of Others with E.J. Koh

    January 13, 2021 - The Magical Language of Others is a powerful and aching memoir, a tale of deep bonds to family, place, and language.
    After living in America for over a decade, Eun Ji Koh’s parents return to South Korea for work, leaving fifteen-year-old Eun Ji and her brother behind in California. Overnight, Eun Ji finds herself abandoned and adrift in a world made strange by her mother’s absence. Her mother writes letters, in Korean, over the years seeking forgiveness and love―letters Eun Ji cannot fully understand until she finds them years later hidden in a box.
    In this incandescent memoir, E. J. Koh fearlessly grapples with forgiveness, reconciliation, legacy, and intergenerational trauma. Join us for an in-depth conversation with E. J. Koh about her memoir, poetry, and translation.

    Cold War Cosmopolitan: Han Hyung-Mo & Korean Cinema of the 1950s

    December 3, 2020 - South Korea in the 1950s was home to a burgeoning film culture, one of the many “Golden Age cinemas” that flourished in Asia during the postwar years. One of the most important filmmakers of the time was Han Hyung-Mo, director of the era’s most glamorous and popular women’s pictures including the blockbuster Madame Freedom (1956).
    Christina Klein provides an illuminating analysis of Han's career and films with careful attention to key issues of modernity—such as feminism, cosmopolitanism, and consumerism.
