Afterlives of Empire: A Symposium on Pachinko with Min Jin Lee

Sponsored by: The East Asians Studies Program at JHU

Join the East Asian Studies Program at JHU as they welcome author Min Jin Lee in a symposium featuring her bestselling novel Pachinko, which was a finalist for the National Book Award and tells the saga of four generations of a poor Korean immigrant family fighting to control their destiny in 20th century Japan. The symposium brings together the author with students and scholars of Korean and Japanese politics, literature, and history who will reflect upon themes of family, intimacy, gender, empire, and identity in the noel. Min Jin Lee will respond to the presentations and engage with the broader audience.

Min Jin Lee is also the author of Free Food for Millionaires, which was a New York Times Editor’s Choice, a Wall Street Journal Juggle Book Club selection, and a national bestseller.

The even is open to the public, but seating is limited. RSVP at https://tinyurl.com/yb3zp8rr
