December 4 noon

"Amplifying Voices: Auditory Texts in Colonial Korea (1910-45)" attends to the junction between sound and literature in focusing on works written for radio broadcast from the Japanese Colonial Period. Yadam is a compound word consisting of Chinese characters “unofficial” and “talk” which can be translated into English as “anecdotes,” “miscellany” or even “historical romance.” Although yadam as an oral and written literary genre has longer origins and history that goes back to the Chosŏn dynasty (1392-1905), what interests me in this study is its remanifestation through new media, such as newspapers, magazines, and radio broadcasting, in the early twentieth century. I will demonstrate the relationship between yadam as a traditional literary narrative that has oral origins and its remediazation through the advent of the microphone and radio which ironically facilitated oral storytelling contests making Korean language and tradition more audible therefore often serving a kind of learning purpose for the Korean listeners, who at this time were Japanese colonial subjects living under Japanese language soundscape.

December 4 2:00 p.m.–3:00 p.m.

The CAS School of Languages and Global Studies Seminar presents:

Heidi Shi (EALL), “Gender Socialization in Chinese Preschool Children: the Role of Teachers”

Gender socialization in the Chinese context is under-researched and poorly understood. This study is a part of a work-in-progress dissertation project that investigates gender socialization of Mandarin-speaking children (age 4-5) in a preschool setting. Gender reinforcement and sex-role stereotyping were rare in their speeches, interpretations of stories, and visual displays. Second, teachers paid significantly more attention to boys, mainly through direct criticisms and commands. By contrast, to get teachers’ attention, girls had to initiate interactions more frequently and generated longer speeches. Traditional feminine traits, such as obedience, compliance, and orderliness were highly advocated, while conventional masculine values, such as adventurousness and competition were discouraged in favor of classroom discipline.
