  • East Asia (Korea)

My inquiries generally concern deeply held intentionalities and affective charge—repulsion, faith, animosity, a sense of purpose, aspiration, and empathy—and how they play out not only in spectacular ways like mass prayer rallies and public protests but also in ordinary, everyday practices. My work engages with theories of difference, inequality, and power, whether in megachurch construction projects, faith-based and conscientious objection to military conscription, or evangelical missionary mobilities.

I publish an online journal called On the Move: an undergraduate journal of creative geographies.
