Ph.D. Candidate in Literature 2018-Present
My research interests center on memory studies and literatures of mass violence. I work on French and Korean 20th century literatures with a focus on periods of occupation. My dissertation examines the ways that the figure of the collaborator is represented in and imagined through national literatures and memory cultures. I take a multilingual, transcultural, and transmedial approach to comparative work, using novels, film, museums, and memorials as objects of analysis in my projects.

Before coming to Duke, I completed an undergraduate honors thesis that examined the intellectual collaborator in French and Korean 1940s literatures as an exception to binary trauma discourses of perpetrator and victim.
