North Korea: The Hermit Kingdom
About the Course:
Observing North Korea through Popular Film and Media
Course description: Many of us are familiar with North Korea, either through what we've read in books or discussed in history classes. We've heard about the hermit kindom, and its aggressive nuclear threats. But how is North Korea portrayed in popular films and media?
In this course we will faciliate conversation about North Korea as depicted in popular media, introducing a different perspective to the most isolated country in the world. We will observe North Korea through a non-traditional lens, analyzing movies, documentaries and blogs rather than news articles or textbooks. We hope to equip students with a broader framework of perspectives--a deeper understanding of the human rights violations in North Korea as well as the country's increasing relevance as an actor in international relations.
