Current Fellows and Scholars

Dima Mironenko

Korea Foundation Postdoc Fellow, August 2014 to June 2015

Harvard University

Faculty Sponsor: Theodore Hughes

Contact Information: dima.mironenko@post.harvard.edu

Dima Mironenko received his Ph.D. in Korean History from the Department of East Asian Languages and Civilizations at Harvard University in 2014. His dissertation, “A Jester with Chameleon Faces: Laughter and Comedy in North Korea, 1953-1969,” is a study of the DPRK’s cultural, social, and film histories during the formative post-Korean War decades. Building on Michel de Certeau’s concept of the everyday, his work examines the emergence of a laughing subject in the North Korean context and the state’s efforts to discipline him through cinema. Dima was born in the former Soviet Union and received his B.A. in International Relations from MGIMO University in Moscow in 2005. He spent a semester as an exchange student at Kim Il Sung University in Pyongyang in 2000. While on the Korea Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship, Dima will revise and expand his dissertation, while pursuing a couple of new projects on North Korean cinema and the history of gender.
