“From World War to Cold War: Music in America’s Radio Propaganda in Korea”
Hye-jung Park, PhD candidate, Ohio State University
Park considers the use of American music in wartime radio propaganda on the Korean peninsula. The talk will focus on Korean perceptions of American and Korean music vis-à-vis the cultural hierarchies in Eastern Asia during the period of change during and following WWII. Much of the research for this lecture is based on the recorded sound collection from the US Office of War Information (OWI, 1942-45) at the Library of Congress.
