Sharon J. Yoon specializes in Korean transnational migration and the formation of diasporic communities since the 1990s. In particular, Dr. Yoon focuses on the impact of globalization on structures of socioeconomic mobility via entrepreneurship and the formation of ethnic boundaries and ethnic solidarity in Korean communities around the world. She received her Ph.D. from the Department of Sociology at Princeton University for her research on South Korean and Korean Chinese ethnic entrepreneurs in Beijing’s transnational Koreatown. As a Korea Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Pennsylvania, Dr. Yoon worked on a book manuscript based on this project. Prior to coming to Ewha, Dr. Yoon also spent two years as a postdoctoral fellow funded by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Sciences at Osaka University to conduct field research for a new project analyzing the emergence of hate speech parades in Osaka’s historic Korean ghetto.
