I studied law at university and worked on history research (primarily in the area of modern history) at graduate school. After working as a fixed-term lecturer at the Faculty of Letters, Otani University, I joined the Graduate School of Global Studies in April 2020 as an associate professor for a fixed-term.
I am currently working on a research project that seeks to clarify “the history of the power that divides Korea” rather than “the history of divided Korea.” In the research, I focus on the action of power and a discourse of “Korea is divided.” As one of the methods of “visualizing” the action of that power, I am contemplating using research by the international law scholar Keishiro Iriye.
