Factory Girl Literature Sexuality, Violence, and Representation in Industrializing Korea

    Research output: Book/ReportBook

    Abstract

    As millions of women and girls left country towns to generate Korea's manufacturing boom, the factory girl emerged as an archetypal figure in twentieth-century popular culture. This book explores the factory girl in Korean literature from the 1920s to the 1990s, showing the complex ways in which she has embodied the sexual and class violence of industrial life.
