Da In (Ann) Choi is a first year master’s student in the Regional Studies East Asia program, where she hopes to apply feminist and queer theories to further the understanding of previously unwritten histories of women during the Korean War. Ann first fell in love with history after conducting a summer research on the villagers’ experiences of the Korean War, when she realized that history can give voices to the marginalized population of society. At Harvard, Ann seeks to further explore the issues of migratory and transgender communities in Korea and continue to develop her archive on the women’s war experiences, which she began in the summer of 2015 with the Queen’s Research Data Centre. Previously, Ann has conducted research on the Korean War and North-South Korea relationships as a Queen’s Undergraduate Student Summer Fellow and a Laidlaw Scholar (University of St. Andrew’s). Outside of research, Ann is passionate about creative writing and sustainability, and founded Queen’s Sustainability Conference and Creative Writing Club during her undergraduate years. Ann graduated from Queen’s University with a B.A. in English Literature and History in 2017. Ann grew up in Seoul, South Korea and Vancouver, Canada. In her spare time, she enjoys long-distance running, hiking, and spending time with her family and friends.
