Inga Kim Diederich is Assistant Professor of History. She works in the areas of East Asian history specializing in Korea, history of medicine, race and nationalism studies and gender studies. Her current scholarship explores the historical development of modern Korean ethnonationalism and its medico-scientific dimensions, focusing on the role of blood as both a cultural symbol and medical material in the formation of modern Korean identity. Professor Diederich previously taught in the Department of History at UCSD, where she received her doctorate degree, and spent the last three years conducting archival research in South Korea. At Colby, she is teaching courses that survey East Asian and Asian diaspora histories, addressing the role of race, gender, class, and (post)colonialism in shaping historical experiences in and beyond East Asia.
