Asian Studies Seminar Series, Seminar 1 2017 : Affective citizenship and ‘multiculturalism’ in South Korea: Children’s inter-ethnic relations at South Korean elementary schools Other events...
My paper examines how issues of citizenship and belonging within an emergent ‘multicultural’ South Korea are articulated through the experiences and perspectives of multi-ethnic and mono-ethnic Korean primary school children. Based on ethnographic and interview data and drawing on theories of ‘affective citizenship’, geographies of exclusion (Zembylas 2011; 2014) and Korean concepts of relationality (‘we-ness’ uri, and ‘connectedness’ jeong), I analyse children’s inter-ethnic relations and the exclusionary and inclusionary politics of belonging at school. In doing so, I argue that specific Korean conceptualizations of relationality are critical to understanding the cultural dynamics of (affective) citizenship and are important for understanding processes of marginalisation and discrimination toward people with multi-racial and multi-ethnic backgrounds.
