Students read representative works of Korean literature by both male and female writers and analyze and discuss, concentrating especially on the works written during the colonial period, which was also the time when ‘modern’ Korean literature first started to take shape. Students also discuss how female (and also male) characters are represented in the works of male writers during colonial times, and the meaning of such representation.
