One year on from the sinking of the Sewol (16 April 2014), SOAS is holding an afternoon of lectures looking at its impact.

You’ll need to duck out of the last session before it finishes if you want to hear Grace Koh and Mark Morris talk on the subject of film adaptations of Korean novels, just down the corridor at 5:30.
