Yeonjoo Kim is a PhD student in the Department of Educational Studies. She has been interested in understanding our lives as they are conditioned by specific contexts through the lens of learning. At the same time, she believes learning can change our lives’ conditions. Through continuing to learn we are, as Eduard C. Lindeman states, “in becoming”. Her current study title is “Learning and Life in a Changing World of Work: A Narrative Inquiry of South Korean Millennials”. This study seeks to understand modalities of learning and life in a changing world of work, with the premise that the changing world of work is shaped by the interplay between human agency and sociohistorical and politico-economic structure.
From 2018, Yeonjoo is serving as an EDST PhD Committee member. From 2020, she is also serving as a graduate student representative in Canadian Association for the Study of Adult Education.
