Hi, my name is Shyun J. Ahn. I am an undergraduate student studying comparative literature (International Literary and Visual Studies) and philosophy at Tufts University. My primary academic interest is contemplating the possibility of applying East Asian philosophy to cultural criticism, including that of gender and queer theory. My ultimate ambition is to apply metaphysics that are rooted in East Asia not only to interpret East Asian and diasporic literature but also to establish a theoretical foundation that can discuss works from different linguistic, regional, and cultural origins.

Other than academics, I translate and write novels and poems in my free time. I primarily translate Korean texts to English, and I write in both languages. I hope to engage in academic discourses after graduation in December 2018 through enrolling in a postgraduate institution, and I am currently in search of comparative literature programs that fit my academic interests and experience. 

If you are interested in getting in touch, please send me an email to shyun.j.ahn@gmail.com. Also, please check out my website and/or curriculum vitae to see the details of my academics and translation experience. Thank you.
