The rise of a new youth subculture in the Republic of Korea is an outgrowth of dramatic changes occurring there in the 1990’s. The country elected its first civilian president, it experienced new prosperity, and became increasingly exposed to Western influences. Young Koreans became exposed to the internet and a steady stream of new musical influences. Our Nation is a stunning portrayal of how Korean youth are using punk rock to find their voices in a rapidly changing culture.

Jeremiah Lecture Series
“Performing (in) Bali: Kembali, Bali, and Hyper-Bali”
Michael Tenzer, Professor of Music, University of British Columbia
Knight Library Browsing Room
3:00 pm

Bali’s vibrant culture has experienced virtually nonstop accelerated change for a hundred years or more, almost always in conjunction with the phenomenon of cross-cultural interaction. This presentation combines film and discussion to problematize the multidimensional strategies, successes, and compromises that Balinese culture–seen here in terms of its music–has devised to cope with such change, which includes both inward-facing ultra-traditionalism and the upheavals of ongoing interface with others. These videos will be used a springboard for discussing cross-cultural interaction in the Balinese context and how it has changed over time.

Jeremiah Public Lecture
“Candor the World Over: Toward Some Unlikely Connections Between Japanese film, Global Ideology, Health Care and Political Resistance”
Eric Cazdyn, Associate Professor of East Asian Studies, Comparative Literature and Cinema Studies, University of Toronto
Knight Library Browsing Room
4:30 pm

This talk explores a new candor emerging in the world today, one that immediately recognizes the objective logic of global capitalism–how the stunning inequalities in the world (especially around access to life-saving medications) are not the result of capitalism’s failures, but of its successes. One unlikely place where this growing candor is expressed is in contemporary Japanese cinema (in particular, in the work of Tsukamoto Shinya, Miike Takashi, and Kurosawa Kiyoshi). Clinical, imminent, non-referential, and non-moralizing: these directors twist their cold obsession with horror and the wounded body out of the bloody facts of contemporary history–while at the same time seeming to care nothing for the world. But when these insular cinematic obsessions are put near our most radical democratic desires (for global equality and justice), something sparks and fuses with some of the more hopeful political movements in the world today.

Abstract:
Up until the eve of the Industrial Revolution, the more advanced economies in various parts of Eurasia were more similar than we had realized. This, in turn, demands new explanations for the enormous divergence in wealth and power that emerged in the nineteenth century and a new perspective on the old question of “Why was Europe first?”

Rogue River Room (in the EMU, near the food court)
4:00 pm

Pakhtuns have been in the news ever since the Pakhtun-dominated government of the Taliban was ousted by U.S. forces in October 2002. That same month, an Islamist coalition was voted into office in the Pakhtun-dominated Northwest Frontier Province (NWFP) that borders Afghanistan in Pakistan. Today, global politics still embroil local politics in the NWFP as Pakistani military forces hunt for terrorists in Pakhtun tribal areas along the border. Professor Bangash will address what the issues are for Pakhtuns in Afghanistan, the NWFP and nearby tribal areas in Pakistan, and the ensuing political challenges these issues create for the government of Pakistan.
