Racial Reparation

Abstract:

My presentation will explore the relationship between political and psychic genealogies of reparation. In particular, I will examine the relationship between Korean comfort women and Korean transnational adoptees. Transnational adoptees are often inserted into the global marketplace through histories of imperialism and empire—through war, militarism, and state-sponsored violence against women. In the case of Korea, the first transnational adoptees were orphans or abandoned children from the Korean War—many of whom were the offspring of comfort women. I will explore how political movements for reparation and redress¬ by Korean comfort women against the Japan Government might supplement psychic theories of reparation, and vice-versa, by focusing on a number of case histories of Korean transnational adoptees who learned to live beyond their melancholic states and thus, I argue, beyond the psychic ideals of the conventional Oedipal family. In this regard, I will turn to Melanie Klein and object relations, as they have charted out the most comprehensive theories about psychic reparation. Ultimately, I will approach the question of queering the child and the nuclear family by proposing a poststructuralist account of Oedipalization and kinship.
