On December 1, 2017, Professor Chunrye Kim will give a talk on "The Impact of Perceived Childhood Victimization and Patriarchal Gender Ideology on Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) Victimization among Korean Immigrant Women in the USA" at KCS (Korean Community Services) in Bayside, Queens.

Kim is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology and Criminal Justice at Saint Joseph's University in Philadelphia. She earned her Ph.D. at John Jay College of Criminal Justice/Graduate Center of CUNY, and her primary research interests are victimology, domestic violence, and crime against vulnerable populations such as immigrants, children, and sex trafficking victims. Her work has been published in peer-reviewed journals including Child Abuse and Neglect, Journal of Family Violence, Sociological Forum, and Sociological Perspectives.

KCS, which recently moved into a new building, is located at 203-05 32nd Avenue, Bayside, NY 11361. The event will take place from 6:40 to 8:30. Light refreshments will be available starting at 6:40, and the talk will begin at 7:00, followed by a question-and-answer session. Please note that this talk will be given in Korean.

Professor Kim's talk will examine the link between childhood physical and sexual victimization experiences and adulthood intimate partner violence among Korean immigrant women in the United States. As Korean immigrants often use physical punishment to discipline their children, and reporting sexual abuse is discouraged due to social stigma, cultural factors such as patriarchal values related to childhood victimization and intimate partner violence will also be examined. The findings of this study reveal that IPV victims, compared with non-victims, experienced higher childhood victimization rates.

Please join us for our final seminar event of 2017.
