Lee Yong-Soo and the Fellowship Award
Lee Yong-soo is one of the last living survivors of the “comfort women” atrocity in which she was sexually enslaved by the Japanese military during WWII. She is an avid activist who traveled the world to give testimonies, promote education, and demand formal acknowledgement and apology from the Japanese government.
The “Lee Yong-soo ‘Comfort Women’ Human Rights Research and Creative Activity Fellowship” is designed to support research and creative scholarship projects dedicated to the experiences and the activism of the victims and survivors of the “comfort women” atrocity during and after the war, the role of activists in creating remembrances, the intergenerational trauma and impact of “comfort women” among girls and women today, or comparative experiences of the “comfort women” experience with that of other state sanctioned sexual violence, sexual slavery, and human trafficking occurring in the world.
This is a funded fellowship for faculty and students housed in the Department of Women’s and Gender Studies in the Bellarmine College of Liberal Arts. For questions regarding the fellowship, please contact Professor Stella Oh who is directing the fellowship at Stella.firstname.lastname@example.org.
