Jennifer Chun

Associate Professor
PhD, University of California, Berkeley
Department of Sociology

Professor Chun's research interests are broadly animated by questions about the dynamics of power, inequality and social change under global capitalism. In particular, she explores how people experience and make sense of the social, economic and political transformations associated with employment precarity and the intensification of new and existing social inequalities along gender, race, class and migration status. Her book, Organizing at the Margins: The Symbolic Politics of Labor in South Korea and the United States (Cornell University Press, 2009) won the ASA Race, Gender and Class Section's 2012 Distinguished Book Award (co-winner). Her current major research project examines the affective and emotional politics of organizing immigrant women workers in the San Francisco Bay Area and Vancouver.
