I am interested in the historical and cultural practices of various people involved in postwar Japan and the Korean Peninsula and the expansion of transnational networks from historical and sociological perspectives. In my previous research, I focused on the activities of Korean historians in Japan since the 1970s regarding the “Cho-sen tsushinshi (Korean Envoys to Japan)” and examined the development and significance of historical research, civic movements, and historical commendation projects by the local government (Tsushima City, Shimonoseki City, Busan City, etc.) in Japan during the same period.

Recently, I am also involved in planning international exchange programs on the theme of history and culture, as well as proposing development policies for local governments because of interested in the use of “history” in the real world, as symbolized by the frameworks of “historical practice” and “public history”.
