Diversity and Social Justice

This is another main research area of mine, exploring cultural diversity and social justice issues in arts administration and museum management. I became interested in these issues as I personally feel the effect of an exclusive and unjust society on a daily basis as a person of color, a woman, and an immigrant. Therefore, I naturally gravitate to research topics in these areas. This section includes several examples of my research in this area.
