Join us for a lecture by Ruth Barraclough, Lecturer in the School of Culture, History & Language at Australian National University. Barraclough grew up in Queensland and first went to Seoul as a teenager in 1989. She recently completed Factory Girl Literature, in which argues that the factory girl became a crucial figure in modern Korean literature for the way she embodied the violence of industrial life. Her new project is a history of early communist women in Korea, provisionally entitled Red Love and Betrayal in the Making of North Korea. Lecture will be followed by a discussion. Refreshments will be served. Co-sponsored by the Department of Modern Languages and Comparative Literature at Boston University.
