Welcome, and thank you for stopping by!
A little about me: I’m passionate about the arts, culture, and social justice, and the spaces where they intersect. I received my Ph.D. in English, medieval, and classical studies from Northwestern University, where my research on the relationship between authorial subjectivity and religious and legal forms of confession won an award for best dissertation of the year.
These days, I am an Associate Professor of English and Humanities at the College of Lake County. I’m also an Illinois-certified domestic violence advocate and work with immigrant rights organizations in the Chicago area. I serve on the Board of Directors for Hanul Family Alliance, an organization that provides services to limited English-speaking elderly, and am an elected member of the Korean Women’s International Network. You can find my CV here.
I also used to write a bit more than I do these days. I am a former contributor to Hyphen magazine — you can find a list of my past articles here. I also have a blog with old essays that I occasionally update with trip photos, and a Tumblr photo album. And whenever I can, I enjoy gardening, taking pictures, walking around beautiful places, and most of all, spending time with family and friends.
