The Center for Korean Studies in collaboration with the Japan Studies Program at the University of Washington will be hosting “Spaces of Possibility,” a conference on interactions and parallel developments of recent Japan and Korea to be held at the University of Washington in September 2012.
We will be discussing papers on Korea or Japan that among other things explore contemporary shifts in the ways in which time and space are produced, lived and understood. Suggested topics include: Japan and Korea elsewhere; alternative spaces, displacement or urban exit; visualizations of culture including Japan, Okinawa, North and South Korea; colonial nostalgia in Japan and Korea; and projects and processes potentially ranging from divination to development.
