Embattled Memories | by Suhi Choi

The Korean War has been called the “forgotten war,” not as studied as World War II or the Vietnam War. Choi examines the collective memory of the Korean War through five discrete memory sites in the United States and South Korea, including the pbs documentary Battle for Korea, the Korean War Memorial in Salt Lake City, and the statue of General Douglas MacArthur in Incheon, South Korea. She contends that these sites are not static; rather, they are active places where countermemories of the war clash with the official state-sanctioned remembrance. Through lively and compelling analysis of these memory sites, which include two differing accounts of the No Gun Ri massacre—contemporaneous journalism and oral histories by survivors—Choi shows that diverse narratives of the Korean War compete for dominance in acts of remembering. Embattled Memories is an important interdisciplinary work in two fields, memory studies and public history.

Suhi Choi studied at Korea University in Seoul, Brooklyn College, and Temple University.

get lost and disappear

and different would prevail
And where only hardy life hangs on
to all that it entails... Read More
