Lee Presents Research at Conference

Janie Lee, Assistant Professor of Linguistics, presented a paper titled “Ideologies of Language Competence and Citizenship in South Korean Television” at the 40th Annual Conference of the American Association for Applied Linguistics in Portland, Oregon (March 18-21). The presentation examined evaluative remarks made on foreign-born men’s Korean fluency in a popular TV show and argued that these men’s race and gender play a role in their exclusion from Korean nationhood.
