MemberSookja Cho

I am an associate professor at Arizona State University’s School of International Letters and Cultures. My research concerns Korean and Chinese literature and culture, Sino-Korean exchange, and East Asian comparative literature. My primary focus is on the premodern period. I have a particular interest in subjects which reveal a heterogeneous but interconnected East Asian past, such as gender and religion, orality and performance, mobility and diasporas, and literary migrations. I am eager to represent the concerns and interests of colleagues and friends who teach East Asian languages, literatures, and cultures. As a member of the forum, I would draw upon my knowledge, skills, and experiences to facilitate and encourage dialogues about East Asia among scholars across disciplines. I would also like to improve the general audience’s understanding of East Asia’s cultural legacy as an essential part of our modern, culturally nomadic lives. With scholarship in the humanities under ongoing and increasing threat, I strive to voice our hopes of reframingthe role and value of humanities education and of exploring new approaches that benefit our humanities communities, including those that interface with artificial intelligence.

I was trained as a classical philologist and a linguist. I wrote my PhD on the ‘Semantics of Colour Terms in Hellenistic Poetry’ (University of Athens, Greece 2011). My research is interdisciplinary and draws on a wide range of sources and methodologies. I have published over 30 academic papers in well-acclaimed international volumes and have managed several research projects in Greek Dialectology at the Academy of Athens, Greece and at the Greek Ministry of Education, where I was tenured 2001, after succeeding in rigorous nation-wide examinations. In 2014 I earned a two-year Marie Curie Fellowship entitled ‘Chlamys. The cultural biography of a garment in Hellenistic Egypt’ (Grant agreement no. 657898). This prestigious grant resulted in a two-year fellowship at the University of Copenhagen (May 2015 – April 2017) Project website: Since January 2017 I have been a member of Equipe Condillac-Listic at the University of Savoie Mont Blanc, an international research group interested in different aspects of ontology and multilingual terminology ( As a member of this team in charge of initiatives linked to Digital Humanities, my research activities aim at promoting the interdisciplinary dialogue between different research communities, namely those working in Artificial Intelligence, Knowledge Representation, Semantic Web technologies and Ontology, with Humanists, especially those working in Classics broadly defined, i.e., covering all possible expressions of the cultures and cultural heritage of Ancient Greece and Rome, both tangible and intangible: movable and immovable objects, texts, and practices.

I’m an Assistant Professor at Columbia University. My research focuses on the emergence of musical meaning in contemporary art music, the development and cognitive bases of musical experience, and the phenomenology of bodily interactions in musical behavior. My monograph, titled Enacting Musical Time (available now through Oxford University Press), examines how listeners’ understanding and experience of musical time are shaped by bodily actions and gestures.
