Imagining Mass Dictatorships: The Individual and the Masses in Literature and Cinema

Research output: Book/ReportAnthology (editor)

Abstract

Abstract in Undetermined
Imagining Mass Dictatorship is the fifth volume in the ‘Mass Dictatorship’ series launched by Hanyang University's Research Institute of Comparative History and Culture and published by Palgrave. It sees twelve Swedish and Korean scholars, theorists, and historians of fiction and non-fiction probe the literary subject of life in 20th century mass dictatorships. Generously defined, the ‘literary’ in this context covers a wide spectrum of narrative forms, ranging from the commercial television documentary to popular crime fiction, and from digitally restored amateur film on DVD to the Nobel Prize winning novel.
