Guest edited by Professor Steven Chung of Princeton University and Professor Hyun Seon Park of Yonsei University, the Fall 2017 thematic issue, “The Cold War in Korean Cinemas,” offers seven articles that complement each other in the ways they each redefine not only Korean cinema but the Cold War itself. This issue provides both a deep engagement with the archive and a set of major theoretical interventions.
The articles will be available online shortly through read.dukeupress.edu and Project MUSE, including for individuals not affiliated with a subscribing institution. The abstracts for the current issue are available at jks.weai.columbia.edu.
The Journal of Korean Studies (JKS) publishes articles in all disciplines and across all time periods, both historical and contemporary. The JKS is committed to articles that engage with a Korea-related topic in a substantial way, take existing scholarship (in Korean and/or other languages) into account, and explore new methodologies and theoretical frameworks that speak to readerships beyond Korean studies. We encourage transnational, interdisciplinary approaches to scholarship.
JKS is currently accepting submissions for the special Fall 2019 issue (Volume 24, No. 2) entitled “Archives, Archival Practice, and the Writing of History in Premodern Korea.” This issue is guest edited by Professor Jungwon Kim of Columbia University. JKS also welcomes submissions year round for publication in the spring issue. For more information please visit jks.weai.columbia.edu and https://www.dukeupress.edu/journal-of-korean-studies/
