Sojin's primary research interest is the rhetoric/writing as performance on the page. In particular, she is interested in how certain composition practice materializes written text into an embodied, performative object. In this vein, she pays attention to moments when medium-specific conventions are challenged by the multimodal dimensions of perception. Sojin is exploring an interdisciplinary niche across transnational writing, digital materiality, performance studies, and queer studies.
Before coming to Pitt, Sojin worked as a translator in Seoul, Korea where most of her work involved translating written texts by visual artists, curators, art therapists, and queer activists. She has a B.A. in psychology and M.A in English.
