Research Field(Keyword & Summary)
  1. (1)Furniture and Body in American literature of the 19th century

    In the American literary history, the mid-19th century is considered as the critical point, called "American Renaissance." It tends to be discssed with philosophy like Transcendentalism. It is asscosiated with ouside, isolated, and male. However, in my argument, the literature in the period is strongly connected with inner, kinship, and female.

  2. (2) American Way of Life

    American way of life looks a tradition of the United States, but it started from 1950s. I'm working on how it is formed and makes the country look great.

  3. (3) Active Reading

    Reading has a variety of benefits for English Learning. It shuold be developed with active engargement by students.
