Gender and legal history of early modern Korea
Jisoo Kim received her PhD in History from Columbia University in February 2010. She specializes in the gender and legal history of early modern Korea. She is interested in a broad range of topics in Korean history with a particular focus on female subjectivity, sexuality, crime and justice, diglossia, and the history of emotions. Her dissertation, "Voices Heard: Women's Right to Petition in Late Choson Korea," deals with the issue of women as legal subjects and how women exercised the right to petition to redress grievances. She will join GW in Fall 2010 after serving as a visiting scholar at Seoul National University's Kyujanggak Institute.
