He has taught in the following programs and institutions: History & Literature at Harvard University, where he helped establish an Ethnic Studies field; the American Studies Program at Wellesley College, where he designed courses on Asian American Performance, Techno-Orientalism, and the Korean War.
Dr. Park’s research focuses on how the Korean War shaped, and continues to shape, US liberal empire and Transpacific cultural practices. Dr. Park plans to pursue two ongoing projects at UMD–a multimedia oral history project with Washington, D.C.- and Baltimore-area survivors of U.S. wars in the Asian-Pacific region, and a digital archive on Asian American spoken word, from which he will write a book and a partner will film a documentary.
