Summary of Haunting the Korean Diaspora: Shame, Secrecy, and the Forgotten War – 1st Edition
From publisher University of Minnesota Press:
Since the Korean WarOCothe forgotten warOComore than a million Korean women have acted as sex workers for U.S. servicemen. More than 100,000 women married GIs and moved to the United States. Through intellectual vigor and personal recollection, Haunting the Korean Diaspora explores the repressed history of emotional and physical violence between the United States and Korea and the unexamined reverberations of sexual relationships between Korean women and American soldiers. Grace M. Cho exposes how Koreans in the United States have been profoundly affected by the forgotten war and uncovers the silences and secrets that still surround it, arguing that trauma memories have been passed unconsciously through a process psychoanalysts call OC transgenerational haunting.OCO Tracing how such secrets have turned into OC ghosts, OCO Cho investigates the mythic figure of the yanggongju, literally the OC Western princess, OCO who provides sexual favors to American military personnel. She reveals how this figure haunts both the intimate realm of memory and public discourse, in which narratives of U.S. benevolence abroad and assimilation of immigrants at home go unchallenged. Memories of U.S. violence, Cho writes, threaten to undo these narrativesOCoand so they have been rendered unspeakable. At once political and deeply personal, ChoOCOs wide-ranging and innovative analysis of U.S. neocolonialism and militarism under contemporary globalization brings forth a new way of understandingOCoand rememberingOCothe impact of the Korean War.
