- Curriculum Vitae
Yung-Ying’s research interests lie at the intersections of sociology of culture, emotions, migration, and transnational sociology with a focus on using meso-level, group-focused approaches to studying mechanisms through which beliefs and actions at the individual level create the conditions for larger consequences on the macro level. Her pre-dissertation research explores the role of group cultures and emotional commitments in how political beliefs develop in cultural areas of social life, such as Korean popular culture consumption in global contexts, where how ones perceive politics and the existence of political talk itself are debated. Her dissertation focuses on the dynamics, interactions, and conflicts between the perceptions Asian Americans and Asians have regarding the political and cultural interactions between sending and host countries. She holds a B.A. and an M.A. in Sociology from the National Taiwan University. She is now a member of the Rutgers Digital Ethnography Working Group.
