Whose Democracy? Gender and the 5.18 Gwangju Uprising

May 20 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

FREE

Join HANA this Friday as we commemorate the 42nd anniversary of the Gwangju Uprising!

On May 18, 1980, democracy activists, students, and opposition leaders led a 9-day uprising in the South Korean city of Gwangju against martial law and the military dictatorship government of Chun Doo-Hwan. It is considered to have been a pivotal moment in the South Korean struggle for democracy.

 

Hayana Kim, PhD candidate at Northwestern University, will discuss the gender dynamics surrounding the Gwangju Uprising through the case of Jeon Ok Joo and her testimony in the 1988 Gwangju Public Hearings.
