Research and Teaching Interests
During her professional career, Dr. Kim has been able to contribute to three interdisciplinary fields of studies: Sociology, Religion, and Asian American Studies. By documenting and probing deeply enmeshed social, economic, political, gendered, racialized, and religious contexts of Asian America, her research has been both broadly focused and culturally competent at the same time. Exploring rich and under-tapped research areas of Asian American religions and culture, gendered and racialized experiences of women, and representations of race and gender in the age of mass media, her work emphasizes the interdisciplinary nature of sociology.
