2016 ATLAS annual conference board meeting
Canterbury Christchurch University, UK
Dr. Jaeyeon Choe (Department of Events and Leisure) has been appointed as an ATLAS Asia-Pacific Chapter Coordinator. She has worked on multiple projects in Asia. She had worked in China and Macau, and has worked as a visiting researcher at Chiang Mai University, Thailand. She also helped organize an international conference, “Vernacular Religion, Folk Belief, and Traditions of the Supernatural” in Macau, March 2015. She recently completed a funded research project on cross-cultural understanding of quality of life among local residents, skilled and unskilled migrant workers in Macau (Funded by Institute for Tourism Studies, Macao 2015).
With her background, experiences and networks in the region, she will lead projects that bridge gaps in research and other ATLAS activities. As a first step, she plans to organize an academic conference in January 2018 in the South East Asian region. She welcomes any ideas or collaboration from BU colleagues.
