Grace Ji-Sun Kim’s theological interest is in the area of Constructive Theology, Feminist Theology, and Asian Theology. Her teaching and research center on giving a voice to the marginalized and those on the underside of history. Her new book Colonialism, Han, and the Transformative Spirit (Palgrave Pivot) examines how globalism, colonialism, and consumerism have caused unjust suffering (han) for the earth’s exploited peoples and lands.
