Graduate School of Education (2021-22 Graduate Fellow)

Research Interests

Eunsun Lee is a PhD student in the Educational Linguistics Division at the Graduate School of Education. With a focus on the interplay between language policies and language education practices, her current research interest is in the development of sociopragmatic knowledge and identity of Korean language learners in the U.S. Higher Education contexts, particularly with regard to honorification. Her interest has primarily stemmed from her experience working at the Language Flagship Technology Innovation Center as a Learning Design Graduate Assistant, where she developed and implemented technology-assisted blended learning courses for Korean language learners in the Korean Flagship program. Eunsun holds Bachelor’s degrees in English Language and Literature and Economics from Seoul National University and Master’s degree in Second Language Studies from the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa.
