IAS faculty member Jin-Kyu Jung has been tenured and promoted from Assistant to Associate Professor in IAS at UW Bothell.  Jung arrived at IAS in 2010, moving from an Assistant Professor position at the University of North Dakota. His scholarship focuses on the interplay of politics and power as well as the complexities of race, class, and gender in cities, and asks how the shaping of these categories effectively complicates urban geographical knowledge. From this framework, Jung explores new ways to expand the qualitative capabilities of GIS and geographic visualization.  Congratulations, Jin-Kyu!!!
