Visiting scholars to discuss North Korean gender relations, youth literature

This Center for Asian Studies colloquium, titled "New Perspectives on North Korea: Building the Socialist Future in the Cold War Era," will feature academic talks by two scholars on North Korea, illuminating new perspectives on North Korean gender relations and youth literature.

Suzy Kim, Rutgers University, and Dafna Zur, Stanford University, are two of the very few humanities scholars in the U.S. whose research focuses on North Korea. The event will provide the CU Boulder Asian studies community a rare opportunity to have an in-depth look into North Korean society that is underrepresented in the news hype generated by political and military tensions.

Friday, Sept. 22, 4-6 p.m.
ATLAS Center, room 102
