My dissertation is on contemporary (21st century) Korean and Korean American women's poetry and a focused reading method that emphasizes the reader's ethical position and the authors' historical-cultural and literary contexts. More broadly, I am interested in feminist theory, gender and sexuality, translation, transnationalism, and diaspora.
