I am a doctoral student at Boston College where I research and teach postcolonial literature. My research uses literature as a lens to examine and critique economic and kinship structures in the postcolonial anglophone world. At Boston College I teach freshman composition, first-year literature (organized around the theme of the global novel), and the Introduction to Postcolonial Literature. I am also an author, and my short stories have appeared in several digital publications.

Born in Seoul, Min grew up in Detroit and its suburbs, and has spent most of his adult life in the greater Boston area. His first full-time job out of graduate school is the same job he still has, which is teaching Asian American literature, American studies, and contemporary literature at Boston College. He went to a Catholic high school, so he finds it weirdly comforting to be working at a Jesuit university. Plus ça change. In recent years, he’s grown very concerned about the weather.

Welcome to my profile! I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in medieval history at Boston College, where I began my studies in 2019. From 2015 to 2017, I attended Yale University as a Marquand Scholar, where I received my M.A. in religion from the Divinity School. I also hold my B.A. in history and classics from Bard College, where I attended from 2011 to 2015 as an Excellence and Equal Cost Scholar. My current research interests include: medieval interactions with caves and the underground; translation and vernacularity in the early medieval period; lived religion in early medieval Britain and Ireland; the medieval reception of Christian apocryphal texts; and Old English poetry, especially “The Dream of the Rood.” Other interests include: media theory; the history of the museum; medieval reception studies; and the study of medievalism in contemporary speculative fiction and new media. I previously worked in the academic publishing industry, during which time I held editorial positions at Wiley-Blackwell, Yale Law School, and Harvard Medical School. At Yale Divinity School, I re-founded the previously defunct scholarly journal of religion Glossolalia, and served as its editor in chief from 2016 to 2018.
