Hot off the Presses: Crystal Mun-hye Baik

The Center for Ideas and Society presents a book talk with Crystal Mun-hye Baik, Assistant Professor, Department of Gender & Sexuality Studies (GSST). 

Reencounters: On the Korean War and Diasporic Memory Critique

In Reencounters, Crystal Mun-hye Baik examines what it means to live with and remember an ongoing war when its manifestations—hypervisible and deeply sensed—become everyday formations delinked from militarization. Contemplating beyond notions of inherited trauma and postmemory, Baik offers the concept of reencounters to better track the Korean War’s illegible entanglements through an interdisciplinary archive of diasporic memory works that includes oral history projects, performances, and video installations rarely examined by Asian American studies scholars.
