“The War Is Not A Bomber Jet Anymore”: Reencountering the Korean War through Aural History — Oral History Master of Arts
Next up in our OHMA Workshop series, Dr. Crystal Mun-hye Baik, OHMA alum and University of California Riverside professor, and members of Nodutdol for Korean Community Development present on the Intergenerational Korean American Oral History Project, a diasporic memory archive of the un-ended Korean War. Throughout the talk and Q&A segment, participants will also discuss what it means to draw on oral/aural history to amplify the urgent importance of anti-racist organizing, as well as the complications that emerge in attempts to document prolonged histories of transnational war. Join us next Thursday (11/19) for the conversation!
