MyungIn Ji is a PhD Candidate of the Department of Geography at the University of Kentucky. Her academic interest lies broadly in the intersections of urban culture and redevelopment. Specifically, her dissertation project "Becoming (In)authentic" is about retail gentrification of Seochon, Seoul, South Korea. By drawing upon the poststructural concepts of fantasy, simulacra, and rhythm, she explores how the cultural politics regarding authenticity entwines with the dynamics of historic preservation and retail gentrification.
