"Generational Dynamics and the Crystallization of the Christian Right in Korea"

Having conducted field research in South Korea and drafted two empirical chapters of my dissertation, I hope to refine my arguments in these chapters and write two more chapters, one theoretical and the other historical, during my times as a Martin Marty Junior Fellow. As my dissertation project is a study of Korean conservative evangelicals engaged in contentious politics, I look forward to joining conversations with other fellows and diverse audiences including undergraduate students and the wider public to search for broader relevance of this case study as well as to acquire a comparative perspective on the intersection of religion and the public life in the contemporary world. In so doing, I am truly honored and grateful for having this wonderful opportunity to be part of the venerable legacy of the Martin Marty Center.
