Join us for our second talk by Professor Ha-Joon Chang on The Economics of Parasite! This widely attended event is back for a second time.
About this Event
CAMSED is proud to host our very own Professor Ha-Joon Chang in a timely talk on the economics of inequality as presented in the world-renowned film by Director Bong Joon-ho, Parasite. The film is currently available for streaming through Amazon Prime Video.
Winner of four Academy Awards, a Golden Globe, and the Palme d’Or, the film touches on the dynamics of exploitation, class conflict, and the internalization of a capitalist subjectivity in the microcosm of a wealthy South Korean home, and a family’s attempt to escape its systemic deprivation.
Within the context of this artistic masterpiece, Professor Chang’s talk will center on the economics of Parasite, discussing the themes of inequality and its transcendence in a world of highly globalized and concentrated capital.
