It’s been a while. What have I been up to? Along with reading a lot of critical theory (ah, course work!), I’ve published an article in the Asia Pacific Affairs Council (APAC) Journal, published by Columbia University’s Weatherhead East Asian Institute. You can find it on page 8. I tell the story of a North Korean defector and how her life on the margins of several Northeast Asian societies is emblematic of the challenges these refugees face.
