Call for Papers on "Korean Culture, New Media, Digital Humanities"

Thematic issue of The Journal of Korean Studies, Volume 20 No. 2 (Fall  2015)

The Journal of Korean Studies special issue 2015

Due July 31, 2014

 

What are the relations between print-based Korean cultural production  and new media? How did old media that were once considered new--radio,  film, and television, for example--interact with each other and with  older print-based forms in colonial and/or postcolonial Korea? In what  ways do contemporary new media shape current forms of experimental  and/or popular literary, filmic, and artistic practices in an  increasingly globalized context? How will research methodologies  associated with the digital humanities change the way we approach  scholarly work on Korea?

The 2015 thematic issue of The Journal of Korean Studies invites  papers that take an interdisciplinary approach in exploring the  significance of new media and digital humanities to studies of Korean literature, film, visual culture, and history. We welcome papers that  focus on the use of new media and technologies (for example, digital  reading, computer-generated imagery, installation or performance art that negotiates real and virtual worlds), as well as papers dealing  with any period (premodern/modern) that both comment upon use of  digital humanities-related research methods and employ them in the paper itself. We encourage manuscripts on Korean cultural production  that take into consideration in some way one or more of the following: the history of media in Korea; the relations among different media in  the twentieth century; interactions between  changing technologies and  questionings of the "human"; the digital turn that informs the  contemporary scene.

Those whose papers are selected for the special issue will be invited to present their work-in-progress for discussion at a workshop to be held at Columbia University in Fall 2014. The workshop will be co-sponsored by the Center for Korean Research, Columbia University; the Department of East Asian Studies, Smith College; and the Journal of Korean Studies. This special issue of The Journal of Korean Studies will be guest edited by Theodore Hughes and Jina Kim.

Articles appearing in the JKS are abstracted and indexed in the Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCI), Sociological Abstracts, Social Services Abstracts, Worldwide Political Science Abstracts, PAIS International, Linguistics and Language Behavior Abstracts, Bibliography of Asian Studies, Historical Abstracts, and America: History and Life.

JKS is a peer-reviewed journal and all papers will be vetted by two outside readers.

Please submit your manuscript by July 31, 2014 to Tracy Stober, JKS Managing Editor, at jourks@u.washington.edu, Theodore Hughes at th2150@columbia.edu, and Jina Kim at jkim@smith.edu.
