Transcript of EAST ASIAN POPULAR CULTURE, EAS 243

EAST ASIAN POPULAR CULTURE, EAS 243
Module Outline
Workshops!
Why not lecture/seminar?

Lets face it, we all tune out after 20 mins max!
I know my opinion - what is yours!?
Student-led
you come with information (reading and viewing) and questions
This has been proved to work more effectively in terms of information transference and retention!
Allows you to think about what you are learning!

My role
Facilitator
Act as a recourse
Maintain working balance and relations between students and the task at hand
Show how knowledge can be applied in specific case studies
PREZI (used due to multi-platform media issues on MOLE)- you need flash to access so
CANNOT BE ACCESSED ON YOUR PHONES.
Remember:
your degree is a trip to the gym not the supermarket!

Your role ?

2 mins in group of three and put the post-its on the board

Note down
the best TV or Film you have seen in the last year:


Give two reasons why the item you have chosen has made an impression on you.



What can you learn about the world around you from the products?

What cultural codes and ideas are being imparted to you?

Popular Culture

Not elitist! ie. not opera, high art or literature

Everyday actions, objects and events that influence people to behave and believe in a certain way.

We learn what is 'appropriate', 'bad', 'trashy', 'fashionable' etc. via popular culture

You can react for or against it....hence we have sub-cultures develop.

You conform to the mainstream or you can rebel against it.

not black and white.
- For example I conform in some aspects of my life but not in others.
PopCulture communicated to us via signs, symbols and narratives.

Ideology

Text

Hegemony

Multiple narratives working at the same time on multiple levels.

how does the clip build tension?
What type of shots are used and why?
What type of editing? (Fast? Show? lots of cross-cuts?)
Is this common in your experiance of East Asian Horror?
RESPECT BOTH ONLINE AND OFFLINE
(IF IN DOUBT REMEMBER THE LAW...!)
READING
Conceptualising and East Asian popular Culture
Chua Beng Huat. P200-205
(to the end of methodological note sub-section)

20 mins to read to 205. Then in groups summrise main points and arguments.
think about how you take notes and how you engage with the written word.
each week I will ask questions on the reading - make sure you do it.
A lot of discussions will be based on it and if you have not done it you will let down your peers who need you to be able to contribute to the discussions.
Week 2 W/B 13th Feb

Workshop – what is production?



Topics to be discussed: Japanese and Korean TV Dramas and their impacts. How does TV operate in comparison to film or other forms of popular culture? What was the ‘Winter Sonata’ affect? What are models of top-down/bottom-up modes of production? Is the Korean Wave nothing more than a government funded ‘created’ entity?





Screening:

Descendants of the Sun Episode 1.

https://www.viki.com/tv/23205c-descendants-of-the-sun?locale=en

Free but there are annoying adds (don't try to fast-forward as that starts the adds)….there are other various sources you can access it online.




Reading:



Walsh, John (2014) ‘Hallyu as a Government Construct: The Korean Wave in the Context of Economic and Social Development’ in Yasue Kuwahara (edt), The Korean Wave: Korean Popular Culture in Global Context, New York: Palgrave Mcmillian.



Chua Beng Huat (2004) Conceptualizing an East Asian popular culture, Inter-Asia Cultural Studies, 5:2, 200-221 You only need to read 205-211.



Now - have a go. In groups make a 20-30 sec film evoking an emotion. Can be anything you choose.
