    My research focuses on Seochon, a neighborhood in Central Seoul.  The purpose of the project is to identify how government projects increasing incorporate neighborhood space into national narratives through preservation and restoration projects.  It also examines how neighborhood residents respond to these changes.  I examine this intersection of contemporary history-making and neighborhood life through the “lens” of digital photography, and trace how the neighborhood has become increasingly visible in recent years.
