Hae-Joung Lee was a PhD Candidate at Seoul National University in South Korea, focusing on gender and education and the sociology of education. The research she worked on at the CWSE asks “What are the identities of intellectual women who underwent higher education in Korea in the 1970s?”  She suggests that Korean women’s education under the colonial rule was highly paradoxical.  It reproduced the existing gender system, but that very system was threatened by women’s education. Because education for women could help shape women’s thinking, intellectual women could theoretically go beyond the role which they had been given.
