Panel presentation :

Korean society has undergone tremendous changes in social values as it has achieved rapid economic development in the last 50 years. The main theme of our panel will be focused on the socio-cultural expression of such rapid changes in value as manifested through communication or artistic media.

In fact, many authors have dealt with the problem of the body by expressing conflict or pleasure between individuals and social strata through the modification of traditional values and the integration of the new ones.

Thus, in this workshop, we will question in particular the evolution of the most recurrent socio-cultural values of contemporary (South) Korean world, such as the notion of the Body related to the one of labour, sexuality and health from the point of view of semiology, cultural anthropology, contemporary comparative literature and sociology in order to identify its complexities and significant characteristics.

We will conduct our research and debate through the corpus of different fields of representation (movie, literature, advertising photography, etc.), which are supposed to embody a subjective and common view of (South) Korean society to connect them with its external, social, and cultural context.

After this panel discussion, at the conference, our panel expanded this topic to see how the agendas presented and discussed in the debate process by the panellists are indeed accepted and expressed in the modern and contemporary Korean art, literature and social media field.

We will have opportunity to identify and prolong the discussion through the exchange of workshops with Korea, China and Japan's East Asian local researchers and authors.
