More than 20 years have passed since the collapse of Eastern European socialist systems. It was thought that the world would move towards greater peace and democracy. But instead the gap between poverty and wealth has expanded worldwide, which has caused an increase in war and terrorism.

Starting in the mid-1960s, a group of Korean artists began to push paint, soak canvas, drag pencils, rip paper, and otherwise manipulate the materials of painting in ways that prompted critics to describe their actions as “methods” rather than artworks. Later known as Tansaekhwa, or Korean monochrome painting, this loose constellation of works became the international face of contemporary Korean...   More >

For others, the catastrophe was a once in a millennium “black swan,” so Japan should “stay the course.’’ Still others declared that 3.11 taught that Japan must...   More >

Lecture | September 16 | 4-6 p.m. | Kroeber Hall, 221 (Gifford Room)


Junko Habu, Professor, Anthropology, UC Berkeley

Department of Anthropology


Archaeologists have long been interested in the study of the mechanisms of long-term social change. Factors that involve specialization and centralization, such as domestication of plants, technological developments and social competition, have been proposed as prime movers for the “development” of human societies. Contrary to these interpretations, this presentation proposes the hypothesis that...   More >

Peter Paik, Associate Professor of Comparative Literature, University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee

Institute of East Asian Studies (IEAS)


This lecture will examine Park Chan-wook's film "Oldboy" as an allegory of the compressed modernity of South Korea, in which the country went from being one of the poorest in the world to a prosperous democracy in less than four decades. The rapid development of South Korea has enabled historical types to flourish that have become unfamiliar in the affluent societies of the West. Drawing on the...   More >

The various Chicano-Asian identifications that inform Hinojosa's writings propel readers on several...   More >

Andrea Bachner, Comparative Literature, Penn State

Center for Chinese Studies (CCS)


This project takes the recent boom of architecture in China, accompanied by vibrant discussions about newness, tradition, and social justice as a basis for a reflection on discourses of globalization and translatability. The "architectural turn" in Chinese studies helps us understand how the real and virtual construction of space gives rise to politics of spatial and cultural relationality.
