Jaeeun Kim is Assistant Professor of Sociology at UM. She is a political sociologist and law and society scholar interested in race/ethnicity/nationalism and international migration, citizenship, and globalization. She received her Ph.D. degree from UCLA, was a postdoctoral fellow at Princeton and Stanford, and a former member at the Institute for Advanced Study. Her book, Contested Embrace: Transborder Membership Politics in Twentieth-Century Korea (Stanford University Press, 2016), won multiple book awards from the American Sociological Association, the Social Science History Association, and the Association for Asian Studies. Speaker’s Synopsis: Jaeeun Kim will talk about her book Contested Embrace: Transborder Membership Politics in Twentieth-Century Korea. Contested Embrace is a comparative, historical, and ethnographic study of the complex relationships among the states in the Korean peninsula, colonial-era Korean migrants to Japan and northeast China and their descendants, and the states in which they have resided over the course of the twentieth century. The talk will focus on Chapter 2 of the book, which examines the prolonged and vehement competition between North and South Korea over the allegiance of colonial-era Korean migrants who remained in Japan in the context of decolonization and the Cold War.
