Soo Mi Lee

Japanese Program

Soo Mi received her B.A. in Comparative Literature from the University of Washington and her M.A. in Asian Studies with an emphasis on classical Japanese literature from the University of British Columbia. At U.C. Berkeley, she hopes to focus her research on modern Japanese literature, with special interest in women's writing and zainichi literature. As a third generation zainichi Korean, she is particularly interested in exploring how zainichi women's literature has opened a previously closed door to self expression.
