Hyo-jeong Hong (MA/PhD)

September 28, 2016

Hyo-jeong’s current academic research focuses on how cultural performance in the service of mass-mobilization, such as a World’s Fair exhibition, a sports meeting, and Korean theatre, shaped a civilized collective Korean body during the transformation from independent nation-state to Japanese colony. She is also interested in finding fresh ways of thinking through, reflecting upon, and engaging with theatres in different cultures. With this interest, she is attempting to establish East Asian traditional theatres as a meaningful basic unit of a theatre study from the perspective of world theatre historiography as a re-emerging research agenda in and around new millennium.
