The Vulnerability of the Historical Memory on Women in Modern Korea: The Changing Narratives on Ch'oe Yŏngsuk

Dr. Hyojin Lee (Department of Asian and North African Studies, Ca’ Foscari University of Venice)

This talk examines the vulnerability of the historical memory on Korean Sinnyŏsŏng (New Women) by re-discovering a Ch'oe Yŏngsuk(1905/6-1932)’s buried and forgotten life during the colonial period focusing on the narratives on her. Ch'oe’s experience is a unique and remarkable case to see the narratives on an intellectual female figure under a colonial restriction. She studied in Shanghai and then went to Sweden in 1926 to study sociology in Stockholm. She was the first Korean woman to receive a bachelor’s degree in economics. Despite her unique experience, there is limited and distorted information on her. Unfortunately, most of the information about her is based on articles in newspapers or magazines on the Korean side and shows a mix of facts and rumors. Especially, magazines actively used her personal life as an amusing reading such as 'sexuality of a new woman' rather than her intellect and transcultural experience. These misunderstandings about her were entrenched and still valid today; Her life was portrayed as a new woman who had an interesting or sensational history rather than a remarkable new woman who was well educated and had global experiences. From the case of Ch’oe, this article elucidates the lives of colonial women were vailed under two layers: ‘colonial subject’ and ‘a woman.’ These restrictions remain in place amid the record and controversy over them, and many new women’s histories are still remembered for being selected/created through the records of that period.
