Welcome to the second episode of our symposium podcast series, recorded on the final day of the event. In this slightly extended conversation, Dr Alice Diver is joined by Frances Latchford from York University in Toronto, Boon Young Han, co-founder of KAARN and a scholar at the National University in Seoul, and John McLeod from the University of Leeds.
This discussion delves into the complex issue of original identity, exploring its significance and pondering how we might redefine or understand it in our rapidly changing world. We'll also examine the human right to identity, questioning if such a concept truly exists, especially in the context of new reproductive technologies and varying familial structures.
Additionally, we'll touch on the ongoing work of the Korean Truth and Reconciliation Commission, looking ahead to the significance of its findings, which are expected to be released in 2024 or 2025. Join us as we navigate these intricate topics, seeking insights and understanding from our esteemed guests.
