Eva Jin

Eva Jin is pursuing a Ph.D. in English (Rhetoric, Writing & Literacies) at Arizona State University. Her research interests include informal, interest-driven writing/composition in affinity spaces, multimodal composition, language learning in the digital wilds, and digital rhetoric. She has been connecting First Year Composition classrooms with interest-driven sites (e.g. Reddit, Yelp) and mentoring L2 writers to write for their passion and interests. She also organizes informal language learning groups in digital fandoms. Outside academia, she is a creative and fanfic writer, and an emergent novelist with a passion for cyberpunk culture.

Juyeon Yoo is currently a Ph.D. candidate at The Ohio State University (OSU) in Multilingual Language Education, having previously received her MA in English Language Education at Seoul National University in South Korea, and her BA in Linguistics at University College London (UCL) in the UK. Originally from South Korea, her diverse educational experiences have taken her to four countries (Singapore, the UK, South Korea, and the US) and have enriched her insights as a researcher and educator.

Member Testimonials

"Being a part of AAAL GSC has been a great experience for me since I feel a sense of belonging. AAAL GSC members are helping the AAAL grad student community by providing helpful resources and interacting with students via multiple platforms. This has taught me a lot about how to build a community and how to serve an academic community as an aspiring professional researcher."  

- Yunjung (Eunice) Nam 

"During the 2017-2018 academic year, I was a member of the GSC social media sub-committee. As a social media sub-committee member, I was able to connect with other graduate students in the field. Additionally, I acquired various skills that I was able to use in my future service endeavors. For members who are considering applying to be a part of the social media subcommittee, I highly recommend doing so as it can provide professional opportunities to expand one's network and to learn from others in the field."

- James Coda 

"I have benefited a lot from serving in the GSC Social Media Sub-Committee in 2018 and in the GSC Event Planning Sub-Committee in 2017. Through these experiences, I got the opportunity to talk with many talented and well-known scholars in the field, as well as junior scholars (like our graduate fellows!) who could be long-term collaborators and friends. Such experience broadened my view towards the field and opened a conversation that was just not limited to the sub-field that I am interested in researching. More importantly, I feel really proud to have the autonomy and voice to be heard as a graduate student."
