Sohee Ryuk

Sohee Ryuk ’15 is one of just 50 students nationwide who was awarded a Thomas J. Watson Fellowship for a year of independent, purposeful exploration and travel outside of the United States.

Ryuk was a Lampert Fellow in summer 2014 when she completed a project titled A Conflicted Narrative: Textbook and Monumental Representations in the Korean War in South Korea.

A native of Seongnam, Republic of Korea, Ryuk’s Watson project is called Unveiling the Layers of Identity: Ethnic Koreans in the Former Soviet Union, and is designed to allow her to explore the complex and multifaceted identities of ethnic Koreans across the former Soviet Union. She plans to travel to Kazakhstan, Russia, Uzbekistan, and Kyrgyzstan.
