Two Days of Powerful Conversations | April 20-21, 2018 | 10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.
 
The symposium, "The Poetics of Passing: Interrogating Self-Fashioning as the Other in Zainichi Cultural Production," seeks to illuminate "zainichi" as a locus for theorizing the notion of passing. Since Koreans and Japanese represent different ethnic groups that cannot be differentiated racially, rethinking received notions of passing through an in-depth study of zainichi literary and visual narratives can help us further theorize hegemonic discourses on passing, as well as the consequences, effects, means, and strategies of passing (or not passing).
 
This two-day symposium will consist of four panels with 12 presenters, 4 moderators, and 8 discussants together with an open discussion forum each day.
