The basic aim of the conference is then to take up that challenge at various levels of viewers’ response. Starting with the sensorial level where the sometimes extreme sensuality and graphic violence of the image can be theorized in terms of a three-tier model comprising phenomenology, cognitive psychology and neurology, the challenge can be carried over to narratology, genre- and author-theory, and last but least, post-colonialism, that is, culture studies. Thus we welcome papers from very different camps on condition that they are trying to meet the challenge of sensual, narrative, and globalized excess.
Some of the topics to be addressed: Multi-sensorial approaches to viewers’ response to the audiovisual excesses of images; New visual and narrative techniques in contemporary Korean cinema; Special treatments of genetic tendencies in contemporary Korean cinema (horror, melodrama, comedy, documentary, etc); The phenomenology of violence and "extreme" cinema
