 Center for Korean Studies (CKS), Mills College Art Museum, Asian Art Museum

Dwelling In-Between (사이에 머물다) will feature Korean American artists, writers, and scholars who will discuss the transnational connections of the Korean American experience. As bicultural, bilingual, and/or binational subjects, Korean Americans describe their identity as in-between “Korea” and the “West”, as both physical locations and diasporic imaginaries. This symposium will celebrate Korean American immigration histories and modes of cultural production, with particular focus on the Bay Area as a dynamic hub of Korean culture.

Scheduled speakers include Rosemarie Nahm, Laura Kang, Myung Mi Kim, Linda Inson Choy, Jung Ran Bae, and Minji Sohn.

A more detailed schedule will be updated soon.
