“Sexing Class: Gender and Labor in Korea and Japan”: A talk with Elyssa Faison and Ruth Barraclough, 5/3/07

May 3, 2007IASEvents0

Sexing Class, which focuses on two forms of labor that have been crucial to understandings of gender, work, and class in Japan and Korea in the twentieth century: sexual labor and industrial labor. By inserting concerns about sexuality, desire, poverty, and social mobility into an analysis of working-class identities and the people who seek to shape them, this work examines how sexual and labor relations have shaped the cultures of industrialization in Japan and Korea. Elyssa Faison is Assistant Professor of History at the University of Oklahoma and Ruth Barraclough is a Lecturer in History at the University of Minnesota. Cosponsored by The Department of History.
