Hyungjoo Han '13

Hyungjoo Han graduated with a double major in Legal Studies and American studies from the Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences. Her research interests center on higher education admissions policies, specifically within University of California schools. Her current research explores the relocation of Japanese American college students during World War II internment camps to higher education institutions outside of the Pacific Coast. Specifically, Hyungjoo’s research focuses on the influx of Japanese Americans to Chicago during the 1940s, the students' re-entry into higher education, and the implications of relocation on contemporary conceptions of the Asian American identity (specifically in the context of higher education). Hyungjoo is currently a J.D. candidate at the University of Pennsylvania and will be graduating in Spring of 2016.
