Hannah Michell teaches AAS 138: Hallyu: Understanding the Korean Wave, Korean pop culture and its consumption. Hannah grew up in South Korea and graduated in Philosophy and Anthropology from Cambridge University in England before earning an MFA in creative writing. Her first novel has been accepted for publication in 2014. She will be teaching a new course on hallyu, or South Korean popular culture, with a focus on television drama, its modes of production, its global reception, and the ways in which it addresses South Koreans’ encounters with modernity, capitalism and Western cultures, in relation to family and gender as well as nationalism and historical narrativity.
