Hye-jung Park considers the use of American music in wartime radio propaganda on the Korean peninsula. The talk will focus on Korean perceptions of American and Korean music vis-à-vis the cultural hierarchies in Eastern Asia during the period of change during and following World War II. Much of the research for this lecture is based on the recorded sound collection from the US Office of War Information (OWI, 1942-45) at the Library of Congress. This lecture is presented as part of the ongoing American Musicological Society lecture series at the Library of Congress.
