    Outline: AIDS, politics of accusation, and racially bound female bodies in the Korean American public discourse 

    Medical Anthropology
    March 3, 2005
    Yongho Kim

    My paper aims to make the claim that geographically and racially imagined narratives within the Korean American community (in particular New York City) that portray the AIDS/HIV epidemic as originating from outside the ehtno-nationally defined core of the Korean American community have contributed to the ongoing process of binding female bodies racially, both in terms of simple mobility between neighborhoods of color and the formation of interracial couples. Unlike previous papers, I plan to start the research process with a specific agenda/hypothesis in mind.

      • 철자 교정에 도움되시길 빌며:

      – 첫 문단 네번째 줄 “ehtnonationaly” 오타로 보입니다.
      – 세번째 문단 11번째 줄 “in the (literal) darkening of kin” 에서, 혹 skin을 쓰시려다 s가 빠진 것은 아닌지요.
      – ‘-cal’로 끝나는 형용사는 부사가 될 때 ly를 붙이지 않나요?
      ex. geographically, racially, ethnonationally

      흥미롭게 잘 읽었습니다. 제겐 매우 재미있고 관심가는 주제여서, 다음 페이퍼가 기대되는군요. ^^;

      이미 제출한 제안서이지만 (페이퍼가 아닙니다, 4월 말에 제출할 페이퍼에 대한 첫 진도 보고서 -outline & proposal-입니다) 고쳤습니다.

      – 말씀하신대로 ly 가 아니라 lly 이군요. 가끔 가다 lly 가 아니고 ly 인 단어들이 있는데 항상 헷갈립니다

      – kin 은 인류학에서 혈족, 피로 이어지는 관계를 칭합니다.

      – ethno-nationally (대쉬를 넣었습니다.) 는 “민족국가적으로”를 의미합니다.

      관심을 가져주셔서 감사합니다. 눈치 채셨나요? 미디어몹 없이는 감도 못 잡을 주제였습니다. 예를 들면 참고 서적 중 킨셀라는 유유(여기에 한자)님의 귀여움에 대한 글에서 가져온 것이구요, defensive paternalistic nationalism – 여성을 “소유”로 보고 타 인종 남성이 침범하는 것에 대해 반응하는 것을 얼버무려서 번역했습니다 – 은 노바리님이 써오신 일련의 글에서 따온것이지요.

      페이퍼 기대가 많이 되는데요… =) I wish I can type Korean well, but looks like a good paper proposal. Anthro is just so amazing; I am such a novice in that field (taking my first anthro class this semester) but I love it! =) Also taking that class at Wellesley College, so if you need 자료 with gender/women issues and etc., let me know!

      이거, 괜히 부담되네요 -.- 제대로 못 쓰면 어떡하지.. oh, since you have offered to help, what are some major ethnic korean american newspapers (english or korean language, doesn’t matter, but targeted to korean americans/korean immigrants) in the east coast?

      (btw, i lived in cerritos during the summer of 2001)

      ok. I look forward to your paper – I think I’ll learn a lot.
      I wonder if female bodies everywhere aren’t “racially bound”

    Polio Resurgence, Control in Saudi Arabia and Surrounding Areas.

    Short paper on current issues in infectious diseases
    February 25, 2005
    Yongho Kim

    Poliomyelitis, called “polio” for short, is a viral infectious disease affecting mostly young children between the age of 3 to 5 years. It is caused by the poliovirus, with three recognized strains – non-paralytic, spinal paralytic, and bulbar – and transmitted through mouth contact with fecally infected water or foods. The virus attacks parts of the central nervous system (the spinal column or the brain stem depending on the strain), causing first fever, vomiting, headaches, pains in the neck and extremities, paralysis and/or death. (Wikipedia, 2005) The virus has a long permanence time, up to 35 days, and is usually found when the child presents floppy and lifeless limbs, a condition known as the acute flaccid paralysis (AFP).

    Anthropology Senior Seminar Yongho Kim February 24 2005… 

    Anthropology Senior Seminar
    Yongho Kim
    February 24, 2005

    Assignment: One-page summary of the theory of your research paper. Does it belong to a particular type? Is it informed by particular types? If it cuts across theoretical lines, which theories does it cut across?

    My research paper argues that social relationships among the GW riders is mediated through material objects. Furthermore, people identify with their motorcycles, their accessories, and accents. And talk to other people as if they themselves were portrayed in those obbjects. Therefore, it will rely on theories of the self, in particular Erving Goffman’s theories of presentation of the self in public spaces and games (chapter 5 of “Behavior in Public Spaces”, “Some Rules about Objects of Involvement”) looks promising. I just started reading them this week, and will take me a few days to go through his ideas.

    I have only a basic familiarity with sociology and do not have enough time to delve into the sociological literature that concerns performance theory.

    I may introduce theories used to talk about identity politics and racialized representations, but I am not sure how politically sensitive it is to use theories about underrepresented racial minorities on otherwise mainstream, if small, majority white (to my perception) middle class groups. If I did, however, I would use Suzanne Oboler’s Ethnic Labels, Latino Lives: Identity and the Politics of (Re)Presentation in the United States, Arlene Dávila’s Latinos, Inc: The Marketting and Making of a People, David Roediger’s The Wages of Whiteness, and Manu DiBango’s “The Shortest Way Through”: Strategic Anti-essentialism in Popular Music

    Superstructures and subaltern practices in the ANC and the SCLC 

    Fredom Movements Essay 1
    February 23, 2005

    Andrew Ancheta
    Yongho Kim

    In his controversial book Black Marxism, Cedric Robinson argues that “the roots of Western racism took hold in European civilization well before the dawn of capitalism” (Kelley, 2000: 12). In a differing approach from George Frederickson to the overlaps of racism and capitalism in the occupation of America, Robinson points out that “… the tendency of European civilization through capitslim was thus not to homogenize but to differentiate – to exaggerate regional subcultural, and dialectical differences into “tacial” ones. (Robinson 26) The dilemma observed by the two intellectuals permeates the literature on the two movements that arose as a response to both instances of the system of white supremacy, as is expressed in King’s undecided observation: “Most of us are not capitalists, we’re just potential capitalists” (Garrow, 41)

    This paper examines the different social forces – racial makeup of the workforce, ideaological relationship to communism and forms of radical socialism, use of the church, and its position in the post-WW2 international political area – that surrounded the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and the African National Congress, and how these differences are manifested through strategies adopted by Nelson Mandela and Martin Luther King and their advisors.
