Currently I am working on the following research projects. For the record
of my past research, please see Publications, below:
1) Childcare Co-ops and Participatory Community Planning in South Korea: This project interrogates the transformative possibility of childcare co-op projects that some progressive faction in South Korea have developed as part of their community based activism. I examine how issues of social reproduction and gender division of labor are contested and reconciled in these projects.
2) Historical-materialist approach to legal geography: I am co-authoring an article with professor Reecia Orzeck at Illinois State University, in which we critically examine the dominance of the "interpretive approach" in the three decades-long history of Legal Geography (a sub-discipline of Geography).
