Current Research Projects

The politics of greenbelt areas in Seoul Metropolitan Area, South Korea

Summary: 
The politics of greenbelt areas in Seoul Metropolitan Area, South Korea: I examine the conflictual processes of political calibrations between state and non-state actors over the deregulation of greenbelt areas located in suburban and peri-urban areas of Seoul. The project further seeks to probe the natures of post-developmental urbanization as registered in the moves to deregulate greenbelts. I conduct this work as a collaborator in a research initiative entitled "Global Suburbanisms: Governance, Land, and Infrastructure in the 21st Century," which was awarded a SSHRC Major Collaborative Research Initiative (MCRI) grant.

Childcare Co-ops and Participatory Community Planning in South Korea

Summary: 
This project interrogates the transformative possibility of childcare co-op projects that some progressive faction in South Korea have developed as part of their community based activism. I will examine how issues of social reproduction and gender division of labor are contested and reconciled in these projects.
