Professor Theodore Hughes receives the 2019-20 Humanities War & Peace Initiative Grant
Theodore Hughes has received the 2019-20 Humanities War & Peace Initiative Grant for his book project, “The Continuous War: Cultures of Division in Korea.”
Here is a brief description of the book:
The Continuous War: Cultures of Division in Korea underscores both the specificity of the Korean War and its effects and the broader circuits of texts, images, and ideas that moved through the Asia-Pacific in the 1950s. Examining literary and filmic representations of the Korean War in South Korea, North Korea, and the US, The Continuous War opens up the ways in which the Korean War—at once a civil war and an international conflict—played a central role in the formation of global cold war culture.
