Humors. Passions. Sentiments. Sensibilities. Feelings. Emotions. Affect. Are they natural, learned, culturally scripted? Are they embodied, biochemical, contagious? Are they personal, interpersonal, social? Are they rational or impulsive? Are they good or dangerous?  Can they be controlled? How are they framed similarly or differently in relation to identity categories (e.g. gender, age, race, class, nation)? How do textual forms function to generate them for readers?

For nearly two decades, from Tell Me Something (1999) and Nowhere to Hide (1999) to The Wailing (2016)  the neo-noir film has been a vibrant part of South Korean cinema. A few films, such as Memories of Murder (2003) and Park Chan-wook’s “Revenge Trilogy,” have enjoyed popular and critical success. Yet as Hyangjin Lee has noted, “Western scholarship on Asian cinema tends to pay little serious attention to gangster or crime thrillers, despite the significance of the genre in the region” (118).

Overpopulation has become the ‘third rail’ of contemporary environmentalism: no major organization wants to touch the issue anymore. While it had been one of the driving concerns of early environmentalism up until the 1970s, exemplified by such seminal texts as Fairfield Osborn’s Our Plundered Planet (1948), Paul Ehrlich’s The Population Bomb (1968), and the Club of Rome’s The Limits of Growth (1972), concern with population control has since dropped off the list of popular environmentalist causes.

Gendered representations of writers appear in all forms of popular culture, from George Gissing’s Grub Street (1898) and Edith Wharton’s Hudson River Bracketed (1929) to David Duchovney’s character in the Showtime series Californication and Melissa McCarthy’s in CBS’s Mike and Molly. Although they each portray aspects of the writing life that were characteristic of their eras, one thing they have in common (besides the fact that a writer wrote them) is that they all exhibit some kind of peculiarity, be it sex addiction, writer’s block, delusions of grandeur, fevered brilliance, etc., that either adds to or detracts from their writing.
