Research Interests

Professor Son’s research focuses on the interplay between histories of gender-based violence and transnational Asian American performance-based art and activism. Her book Embodied Reckonings: “Comfort Women,” Performance, and Transpacific Redress (2018) examines the political and cultural aspects of contemporary performances (protests, tribunals, theatre, and memorial building) in South Korea, Japan, and the United States that have grappled with the history of Japanese military sexual slavery. She is working on a new book titled Reclamation on art and advocacy in support of Asian American survivors of gender-based violence.
