Jiyoon Kim is a PhD student in Cinema and Media Studies. She is interested in various social formations of corporeal and social identities within digital media environments. She plans to explore how media technologies (for instance, the Internet, video games, VR, and remote-sensing technologies) work to naturalize or marginalize certain class, racial, ethnic, gender, sexual, and (dis)able-bodied constructions.
