Sujin Eom is a scholar of architectural and urban studies whose research is anchored in a historical inquiry into migration and space. Eom is currently completing her first book manuscript that situates "Chinatown" as an imaginative and material space within the transpacific history of migration and violence. Eom holds a PhD in architecture from the University of California, Berkeley, with a Designated Emphasis in Global Metropolitan Studies. Eom is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Asian Societies, Cultures and Languages Program and the Department of Geography at Dartmouth College.
Eom's research interests include colonial architecture and urbanism, migration and diaspora, Asian American art and architecture, science and technology studies, and postcolonial urban theory. Eom's next research project investigates transcontinental flows of architecture and urban form during the Cold War, with an emphasis on urban infrastructure built across East Asian cities.
Eom is the recipient of several awards and fellowships, including the International Planning History Society Best Postgraduate Paper Award, the Japan Foundation Fellowship, the University of California Pacific Rim Research Fellowship, and the Social Science Research Council Grant.
