Read Hazel Smith’s “Crimes Against Humanity” (the most important parts for discussion are pages 127-132 and 137-142) and The Guardian piece about North Korean refugees. Write about your prior knowledge/understanding of North Korea and its people: How do Smith’s arguments compare with those of Said in “Orientalism”? Do the concerns around North Korean refugee narratives also relate to Smith’s argument? Why or why not? Other thoughts/opinions?
