Episode 19 - Passing, Identity and Self-Representation
MSU professors Catherine Ryu, Japanese and Korean Studies, and Kirsten Fermaglich, History and Jewish Studies continue the conversation about the notions of passing, identity and (self) representation, across diverse languages and cultures. In December 2018, apropos “Passing” in Russian cinema, we talked about Zainichi Koreans who would like to pass as Japanese. Professor Ryu shared her understanding of Passing as “an authorized movement between and through different identity categories that are not assigned to you." How has our learning community experience about "passing" this year expanded or opened new possibilities for our own research and pedagogical approaches to global identities?

Episode 13 - Passing to the Other's Side in Russian Film
Catherine Ryu, Camelia Suleiman, and Jason Merrill talk about the notion of “passing” in Zainichi cultural production, Arab culture, and Russian cinema. Tied to ideas of racial, ethnic, and cultural identity, “passing” takes place when an individual of a racial/ethnic group is accepted as a member of a group different from their own. In this context Prisoner of the Mountains (1996), the story of two Russian soldiers who are held prisoners by their enemies during the Chechen war offers an example of “passing” in Russian film.
