Recent Research Projects
- New Immigrant Growth Machines: The Politics of Development in Koreatown and Monterey Park - The project takes a look at the transnationally-linked political groups and processes that have contributed to the entrepreneurial expansion of Koreatown and Monterey Park, Los Angeles. The general aim is to understand how the economic and spatial landscape of these globalizing ethnic economies have been shaped by the way pro-growth immigrant entrepreneurs and capitalists are incorporated into local urban/ suburban political regimes. I am also conducting a related pilot study on Korean Americans in Bergen County, NJ.
- Carrying Culture: A Study on Marriage, Family, and Culture among Immigrants and Their Children - The project explores the ways in which sons and daughters of Asian and European immigrants in different household structures negotiate their unequal family roles and adult responsibilities as family caretakers and cultural brokers while growing up and how this shapes their decisions about family, career, and ethnicity in their adult lives.
- “Globalizing” Higher Education in the Knowledge Economy: A Case Study on Universities in South Korea - The project examines the so-called "globalization" of higher education in Seoul, South Korea with particular interest in the way English language capital restructures power dynamics in the university setting of rapidly modernizing nations like Korea.
