In today’s globalized world, diasporas actively engage their homeland, fostering transnational linkages in various areas from academic to business to policy. A "Korean nomad" himself, Professor Shin will offer insights into the transnational linkage of the Korean diaspora, as well as draw parallels to other diasporas and how they connect to their own homelands.

Gi-Wook Shin
is the director of the Walter H. Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center; the William J. Perry Professor of Contemporary Korea; the founding director of the Korea Program; a senior fellow of the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies; and a professor of sociology, all at Stanford University. As a historical-comparative and political sociologist, his research has concentrated on social movements, nationalism, development, and international relations. Shin is the author/editor of twenty books and numerous articles. Due to the wide popularity of his publications, many of them have been translated and distributed to Korean audiences. His articles have appeared in academic journals including American Journal of Sociology, Comparative Studies in Society and History, Political Science Quarterly, International Sociology, Nations and Nationalism, Pacific Affairs, Asian Survey, and Journal of Democracy.
