New Voices—Korean Diaspora

with Deepali Baumann


Class Description

New Voices: Book & Movie Club—Korean Diaspora We will read The Hive and the Honey, published in 2023 and written by Paul Yoon. The New York Times says, “At first glance the seven stories in Paul Yoon’s slim but exquisite collection appear unrelated: A Korean American man from Queens is released from prison and travels to the rural hometown of his former cellmate looking for work; a woman who escaped North Korea decades ago is given one opportunity to send a message to the son she left behind; a Korean immigrant couple who own a corner shop in London plan a seaside vacation. But each narrative is a piece of a larger puzzle that together form a portrait of Korean history and its diaspora that is breathtaking in scope, detailing the persistence of imperialism, war, poverty, and dislocation across generations.” Pick up your copy of The Hive and the Honey from your favorite bookstore or library. We may also watch relevant interviews, documentaries, and movies, depending on the class preferences. ZOOM Mondays: 11:00 - 12:30 Class Limit: 15
