My research interests focus on how the Korean War, popularly known as the US’s “forgotten war,” shaped, and continues to shape, US liberal empire and Transpacific cultural practices. I’ve authored journal articles, policy reports, and book reviews on the ghostly legacies of the Korean War in US and Asian American culture, including the lead essay in MELUS‘s special issue on Asian American performance art.
