Research Summary
  • Korean
  • 본 연구는 서구의 사후이주 내러티브에 관한 것으로 2011년 5월부터 2013년 4월까지 2년 동안 진행되었다. 결과보고서는 연구 초기의 목적과 목표, 연구기간 동안의 구체적인 절차 그리고 연구 성과로 나누어 설명하고 있으며, 출판된 네 편의 논문에 대해 상세히 서술하고 있다. 첫 번째 논문에서는 헤겔의 역사철학과 프로이드의 멜랑콜리아 개념에 대해 이론적으로 설명한다. 사후이주 경험의 개념과 ‘이후에 오는’(coming after)의 개념을 확대하기 위해 헤겔의 역사철학뿐 아니라, 후쿠야마가 해석한 헤겔의 역사적 종말 이론을 국제적 담론 안에서 살펴본다. 이 논문에서 광범위하게 초점을 맞추고 있는 글로벌 멜랑콜리아는 타인의 상실감을 흡수하는 역동성을 발휘한다는 점에서 본질적으로 사후이주 경험과 긴밀한 관계를 이룬다. 다음으로 두 번째 논문인 「문화적 혼종성, 이론 그리고 문학적 사실주의」에서는 혼종성에 대한 문제를 심도 있게 살펴보며, 이러한 문제의 핵심적 요소가 ‘세대간 갈등’에 대한 이해였음을 밝힌다. 세 번째 논문인 「탈식민지 세계의 사실주의와 물화현상」에서는 이전 논문에서 제기되었던 일부 문제들 즉, 진실성과 그에 부응하는 문학·미학적 담론 그리고 사실주의에 중점을 두어 살펴본다. 이 연구는 ‘소속의 문제’라는 큰 테마의 의미를 이해하고 평가하는 측면에서 매우 중요하다고 볼 수 있다. 마지막 논문인 「사후이주 주체와 이차적 상실: 에이미 탠의 『조이럭 클럽』 」에서는 프로이드의 에세이 「애도와 멜랑콜리아」와 탠의 『조이럭 클럽』의 논의를 통해 사후이주 주체의 개념을 고찰한다. 결과보고서에 명시된 바와 같이, 초기의 연구 목표와 목적은 2년의 연구기간 내에 달성되었으며, 연구의 상당부분은 수업자료, 강의, 세미나 그리고 학술회의 발표 등에 사용되었다.

  • “The Melancholia of Beginnings: Post-Migrant Fiction” was a two-year project on Western post-migrant narratives which I began in May 2011, and was concluded in April 2013. The report mainly describes the initial aims and goals, the concrete procedures over the two-year period, and finally the research outcome. The result report describes in details each of the four published articles. The first article was theoretically informed by Hegel’s philosophy of history and Freud’s notion of melancholia. I went back to Hegel’s philosophy of history—as well as Fukuyama’s translation of Hegel’s end-of-history thesis into global discourse—in order to broaden my notion of post-migrant experience, the notion of coming after; to live in the shadow of others’ histories. The article more broadly focuses on what I call global melancholia, which has a concrete bearing on post-migrant experience in that it essentially involves a dynamic of absorbing a loss that in a proper sense belongs to someone else. In the second research article, entitled “Cultural Hybridity, Theory, and Literary Realism,” I wanted to explore further questions of the in-between. The research that went into this article turned out to be fundamental in my understanding of “generational conflicts.” In the third research article, entitled “Realism and Reification in the Postcolonial World,” I attempted to pursue further some of the issues that I raised in the previous article, namely the desire for authenticity and a corresponding literary-aesthetic discourse, realism. This research was crucial in terms of understanding and evaluating the meaning of the larger theme of “questions of belonging.” Finally, in the fourth and final research article, entitled “Post-Migrant Subjectivity and Secondary Loss: Amy Tan’s The Joy Luck Club,” I explored the notion of post-migrant subjectivity through a discussion of Sigmund Freud’s essay “Mourning and Melancholia,” and Amy Tan’s novel The Joy Luck Club. As stated in the result report, all initial goals and aims were reached within the two-year research period. Furthermore, a substantial part of the research was used in course material, lectures, seminars, and conference papers.

  • Abstract
  • “The Melancholia of Beginnings: Post-Migrant Fiction” is a research project that focuses on a variety of notions surrounding post-migrant experience and loss. The first article was theoretically informed by Hegel’s philosophy of history and Freud’s notion of melancholia. I went back to Hegel’s philosophy of history—as well as Fukuyama’s translation of Hegel’s end-of-history thesis into global discourse—in order to broaden my notion of post-migrant experience, the notion of coming after; to live in the shadow of others’ histories. The article more broadly focuses on what I call global melancholia, which has a concrete bearing on post-migrant experience in that it essentially involves a dynamic of absorbing a loss that in a proper sense belongs to someone else. In the second research article, entitled “Cultural Hybridity, Theory, and Literary Realism,” I wanted to explore further questions of the in-between. The research that went into this article turned out to be fundamental in my understanding of “generational conflicts.” In the third research article, entitled “Realism and Reification in the Postcolonial World,” I attempted to pursue further some of the issues that I raised in the previous article, namely the desire for authenticity and a corresponding literary-aesthetic discourse, realism. This research was crucial in terms of understanding and evaluating the meaning of the larger theme of “questions of belonging.” Finally, in the fourth and final research article, entitled “Post-Migrant Subjectivity and Secondary Loss: Amy Tan’s The Joy Luck Club,” I explored the notion of post-migrant subjectivity through a discussion of Sigmund Freud’s essay “Mourning and Melancholia,” and Amy Tan’s novel The Joy Luck Club.
  • Research result and Utilization method
  • As the result report states, the research outcome of this project will be of interest to specialists in Asian-American studies and Asian-British studies, and a readership in postcolonial studies, literary studies—as well as scholars working in a broader field of migration and post-migrant identity studies. The research also found an audience at conferences and seminars, as well as designed courses. The output of this research project has offered a valuable contribution to the understanding of post-migrant experience, and contemporary global literature more generally.
