The upcoming workshop, “CROSS-STRAIT CULTURES: PERFORMANCE, MEDIA, AND HISTORY,” will take place over the weekend of 30 April–2 May 2021. (See below for a detailed schedule.) This workshop revolves around the dynamic interaction of performance, media, and history in both popular and public cultures. By considering how the weight of history animates performance and media and how, conversely, popular culture reiterates and repositions history, the workshop seeks to develop new strategies for examining mainstream and fringe cultures on both sides of the Straits. Speakers will explore the citationality of Yŏsŏng Kukkŭk, South Korea’s all-female theater revue of the 1950s and early 1960s; contemporary histories of boys love and K-pop fandom; as well as more recent forms of “digital gender.”

A day or two before the start of the workshop, we will send an email to all registered participants with a link to the event. If you have any questions or trouble with registration, please email queeringthestraits@gmail.com.
