Hae Yeon Choo

Assistant Professor



Hae Yeon Choo is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology. She teaches courses on gender, globalization, and feminist theory and methods.

Professor Choo’s research centers on gender, transnational migration, and citizenship. Her interest in using intersectional analysis empirically informs her articles in Sociological Theory and Gender & Society. She has also translated Patricia Hill Collins’s Black Feminist Thought into Korean.

Her book Decentering Citizenship: Gender, Labor, and Migrant Rights in South Korea (Stanford University Press, 2016) offers an account of how inequalities of gender, race, and class affect migrants’ practice of rights through a comparative study of three groups of Filipina women in South Korea—factory workers, wives of South Korean men, and hostesses at American military camptown clubs. Her SSHRC-funded project examines the encounter between women refugee claimants and adjudicators at the site of refugee case law in Canada.
