    Between Stereotypes and Resistance: The Politics of Identity in Sherman Alexie’s The Toughest Indian in the World

    Kim, Seonghoon | 2018, 45() | pp.3~18 | number of Cited : 1
    This paper aims at demonstrating that the portraits of contemporary American Indians in his works resist the fossilized and stereotypical images of Indians, and even go beyond the ethnical boundaries set by ‘traditional’ American Indian literature. After sketching out the lines of criticism on seemingly stereotypical characters by some American Indian writers and scholars, this paper examines how the Spokane writer engages with the controversial idea of ‘Indian’ and ‘Indianness’ in his fiction, especially in The Toughest Indian in the World (2000). As this paper proposes, Alexie’s unflinchingly bold representation of new, unexpected Indian characters informs his serious quest for Indian identity. It should be also considered as a literary strategy because they illustrate ways of resisting any easy definitions or colonial labels of contemporary Native people in the US. For example, Etta Joseph in “Dear John Wayne” is subversive in that her story twists a colonial relationship between a white man and an ‘Indian princess.’

    Structural Equation Modeling of University Students’ Father Attachment, Adult Attachment, and Interpersonal Competence

    Kim Jinhee | 2018, 45() | pp.19~34 | number of Cited : 0
    This study analyzed variables’ relationships among university students’ father attachment, adult attachment, and interpersonal competence by applying a structural equation model. In a survey of 338 university students, males were shown to have more stable father and adult attachment than females. Student groups having fathers with higher educational backgrounds and classes, and groups having fathers with professions or office jobs showed higher degrees and quality of father-child communication than other groups. A university student’s father attachment has a positive effect on adult attachment and interpersonal competence, while a university student’s adult attachment has a negative effect on interpersonal competence.

    Study on Cognition and Acceptance of Milk in Colonial Korea (1910~1945) - Focused on Articles about Milk in Newspapers and Magazines -

    Kyou Jin Lee | 2018, 45() | pp.61~84 | number of Cited : 0
    Before its introduction during the Japanese colonial era, milk was very unfamiliar to Koreans except occasional use by small number of nobility. According to the media back then, including newspapers and magazines, milk was introduced as an ideal, healthy diet for men and women of all ages. Moreover, people related drinking milk to the idea of “cultural development and proportion,” as if it were the measure of civilization. Given the idea that cow milk could replace women’s breast milk, social changes did occur. Although the experts emphasized that mother’s milk was superior to cow milk, the influence of public mass media about the new parenting style of modern women and western people at the time assured the public that cow milk was a good substitution for human breast milk. Meanwhile, the influence of newspapers and magazines advertising different kinds of condensed, powdered, and raw milk boosted the consumption of milk. Because of the media’s assertions that milk could help people get over illnesses and live longer and improve women’s beauty, milk became a symbol of happiness, love, modernization, and hope. Likewise, milk represented not only the high nutrition value that it brought to people, but also the new culture that reflected the image that Japan and the western nations had about Korea’s situation during the Japanese colonial era.

    A Study of the Migration of Ethnic Chinese to Vietnam and the Establishment of Chinatowns

    Kim Hyunjae | TaeShik Kim | 2018, 45() | pp.85~100 | number of Cited : 0
    For a long time Ethnic Chinese have attracted attention as a representative diaspora which has been extremely successful economically. In particular, the Chinese community in Southeast Asia, in addition to sharing hometowns and dialects, maintains mutual protection and aid as an economic group. This is because ethnic Chinese originating from southern China have taken root in indigenous societies by forming a community around economic activities after emigration in order to find opportunities for employment and family succession for quite some time. The Chinatowns that have formed all over Southeast Asia are a good example. In particular, Saigon (西貢), the largest city in Vietnam, was established and has developed from the formation of a Chinatown by Chinese emigrants, and can be considered the most representative example among the various Chinatowns. In addition to Saigon, Chinese emigrants who moved to Bienhoa (边和), Mytho (美湫), Hatien (河仙), etc., have also formed and developed Chinatowns, respectively. This, consequently, made a large contribution to the southward expansion of territory in Vietnam. Therefore, Chinese emigration to Vietnam and the formation of Chinatowns have had political as well as economic implications in the development of Vietnam. This study aims to examine the political and economic implications by looking into the process of emigration of Chinese to Vietnam, the formation of Chinatowns, and the development process of Chinatowns in Vietnamese cities. In order to carry out these research objectives, this study will take a narrative approach to comprehensively analyze relevant references and various materials published in Korea and Vietnam.

    Repetitive Right Dislocation Constructions and Repetitive Fragments: With Reference to Verbal Idioms in Korean

    Lee Soo-Hwan | Lee, Doo-Won | 2018, 45() | pp.101~120 | number of Cited : 3
    The idiomatically combining expressions (ICEs) are compositional. In the repetitive right dislocation constructions (RDCs), the ICE correlate is identical with the ICE appendix, which is fronted in the appendix clause, followed by clausal ellipsis. The present work introduces the repetitive fragment answer, which is fronted to the sentence-initial position (i.e., Spec-CP) to be focused, followed by clausal ellipsis, keeping its idiomatic meaning unharmed. In the case of the repetitive fragment answer, the function of the focusing adverb modifying the verbal idiom including correlate in the direct (wh-)question is to put a strong emphasis on the correlate and induces the fragment answer to be focused. There is parallelism between the repetitive ICE RDCs and their corresponding repetitive ICE fragment answers in Korean, which shows that a natural consequence under the standard assumption that fragments are derived by ellipsis and are island-insensitive due to the repair effect.
