2. International Conference: "The "Miracle" Narrative of the Korean Cultural
Industries: Perspectives from the Middle East", Hebrew University of Jerusalem, 8-9
May 2013

In the Middle East, as in other parts of the world, the Korean cultural industries
have proved extremely efficient in introducing new images of Korea to new audiences.
Known as the 'Korean Wave', TV dramas, Korean pop music, and Korean cinema has been
successful not only commercially, but has also left viewers with an image of Korea
as a home of a vibrant culture and artistic innovation. This impression has
stimulated interest in Korea and its culture, resulting in a rise in tourism and in
the establishment of new Korean studies programs in institutions of higher
education. Korea has never been so popular and familiar in the Middle East as it is

The purpose of this conference is to examine the way Korean popular culture is being
appropriated and received in the Middle East, and to examine the social and academic
developments it inspires. The conference presentations will attempt to develop an
integrative framework to analyze the dynamic relations between cultural industry,
cultural consumption, and academic studies through a focus on the experience of the
Korean Wave in the Middle East.

Deadline for proposals 10 December 2012. Information  .
