Generations: An Intro to Cultural Anthropology and Korean Studies


Course description

Korea is a rapidly aging society which has experienced at least two major financial crises since the late 1990s while gaining increasing international attention for economic as well as cultural exports. In this course we explore cultural anthropology and contemporary South Korea through the concept of generations, which relates persons and things through pasts, presents, and imagined futures. One of the most consequential Korean examples of such a concept is the '386 generation’ which is often compared to the Baby Boomers. Through case studies you will learn the entangled person and thing approach to generations in cultural anthropology and Korean Studies. You will also learn about the lineage and cohort approaches to defining generations. You will apply these concepts through guided discussions and activities which will encourage connections to various people and places around the world.
