Korean American Speculative Fiction, Militarized Technogeometries, and Yoon Ha Lee’s “Wine”
Stephen Hong Sohn, in “‘Perpetual War”: Korean American Speculative Fiction, Militarized Technogeometries, and Yoon Ha Lee’s ‘Wine,’” investigates the look and feel of Korean American SF in its present shape. Sohn identifies how militarized tehcnogeometries, defined as the presence of and reference to soldiers, armies, battles, skirmishes, casualties, bombings, and other elements of war, become fundamental to the ways that a science fictional Korea overlays the historical and social contexts in which South and North Korea actually exist—ever under the peril of territorial dissolution. Sohn then shifts focus by analyzing Yoon Ha Lee’s “Wine” (2014) through the lens of militarized technogeometries to demonstrate how Korea materializes through its relationships to perpetual war.
