CORE: Critical Orientations to Race and Ethnicity
Meeting Description: 

Please join us for a lunchtime seminar with Dr. Helen Jin Kim, a historian who studies America’s religious past in global context. She is currently writing a transpacific history of the unexpected re-emergence of American evangelicalism, from the outbreak of the Korean War to the rise of Reagan (1950-1980). In her research, she investigates categories of race and empire, and uses English and Korean sources collected from U.S. and South Korean archives.

Helen Jin Kim is Assistant Professor of American Religious History at Emory University. She completed her MDiv and PhD at Harvard in 2017, where she was a William R. Hutchison Presidential Fellow. Kim's research began at Stanford University in Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity, and grew through her involvement with the Asian Pacific American Religion and Research Institute (APARRI).
