I am a Master student in the Graduate Program in Social Anthropology at York University. I also hold a bachelor’s degree in Asian Studies from the Université de Montréal (UdeM). My current research interest is the presence of han (한) —an ethnonationalistic and transmissible affect that negotiates the politics of Korean identity, which also travels with the diaspora—in Korean contemporary culture. I am fluent in French, English and Korean.
