The (Unending) Korean War
academic conference, films, art exhibition

Friday, April 22
8:30am-5:00pm Cold War Culture from a Transnational Perspective (3 panels)
Keynote speaker: Bruce Cummings, University of Chicago, Author, The Korean War

Why hasn’t the Korean War officially ended?

An academic conference, art exhibit, and series of film screenings examine this war and the ways in which it has reconfigured memory, political economies, knowledge, and culture on both sides of the Pacific, leaving legacies of uprootedness and unending conflict. From Cold War culture to national security policies, “The (Unending) Korean War” will contextualize the current crisis with new scholarship, films and art in a two-day event.
