This conference explores the transmediation of K-pop as it expands into a network of formats, genres, and activities that stars and fans participate in together. In the K-pop ecology, K-pop is not only defined by the discrete, packaged units that are sold as K-pop, but about a broader network of media objects and media effects. K-pop production and distribution has been engulfed in a larger cultural, technological, and economic environment to the point where (to quote Thomas Lamarre’s observations on anime), K-pop “ceases to be an object in the received sense of the term, instead turning into a mode of existence.” How is K-pop as a kind of ecology and a “mode of existence” marshalled, transformed, and operationalized across seemingly disparate contexts and zones? Learn more. 

Presented by the Center for Korean Studies. Co-sponsored by the Korea Foundation, Asian American Research Center, Center for New Media, and the Center for Race and Gender.  Berkeley Interdisciplinary Migration Initiative and the Center for Race and Gender.
