Jieun Cho

Jieun Cho is a PhD candidate in cultural anthropology at Duke University and 2022-23 Mellon/ACLS Dissertation Completion Fellow. Her research investigates the intersection between children’s health, everyday life, and the ethical/political imagination in post-nuclear Japan. Focusing on middle-class families who are struggling to raise healthy children amid nuclear risk in and beyond Fukushima, she is particularly interested in how “life” is re/produced through care work when it is lived with intimacy with radiation.

She holds certificates in Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies and East Asian Studies.
