Two Lectures Presented by History Department and Honor Society

The Center for Korean Studies, the UHM History Department, and the Phi Alpha Theta History Honor Society present:

“Visualizing History: The Politics of North Korean Art, 1966-1994”

A lecture by Dr. Min-Kyung Yoon
Thursday, September 19th
4:00 – 5:30 pm
Conference Room, Center for Korean Studies, 103A

Dr. Yoon will explore the ways visual images write history by unraveling the interplay between art, history and politics in North Korea. This talk presents how history and the everyday were recreated in ink and brush paintings since 1966 to give visual form to a socialist imaginary far removed from the present reality yet essential for sustaining the state and its leaders. Ideology in North Korea, often perceived as a constant, has changed, evolved, and engaged with the world. Dr. Yoon earned her Ph.D. from Leiden University and is currently a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Korean Studies and the Department of History.


The UHM History Department and the Phi Alpha Theta History Honor Society present:

“21st-Century Indigeneity and Resistance: Movements in Indigenous Latin American”

A lecture by Dr. Sue P. Haglund, UH Mānoa Honors Program
Monday, October 3rd
12:30 – 2:00 pm
Sakamaki Hall A201

Dr. Haglund will explore the ways in which aesthetic materials and political engagements demonstrate an Indigenous continued existence and autonomy in Latin America in spite of colonial pressures from Spanish-speaking communities. That is the case in places such as Panama. Dr. Haglund is currently an Educational Specialist in the Honors Program.

Both talks are free and open to the public.
