Jooyeon Rhee

Assistant Professor of Asian Studies and Comparative Literature
Pennsylvania State University

“My ASIANetwork-Luce Postdoctoral Teaching Fellowship in 2012-13 was an invaluable experience that nourished my academic interests and passion for teaching. The teaching component of the postdoc encouraged me to develop courses, incorporating my expertise as well as students’ interests in Korean studies. Since the postdoc also gave me the opportunity to focus on my academic work, I was able to publish academic journal articles.

My postdoc experience was crucial for me to further mature as a researcher and educator of Korean studies and inter-Asian relationships and become a productive member of academic communities beyond North America.”

Erin M. Cline

Professor of Comparative Ethics & Theology
Georgetown University

“The opportunity I had through the ASIANetwork-Freeman Student-Faculty Fellows Program gave me the background and training that I needed to go on and do research independently in China as a graduate student and a strong foundation to build upon during the early years of my career.

I wish every one of my students with an interest in going on to study Asia could have an opportunity to participate in this type of program.”
