Jungmin Kwon is an assistant professor in the Department of Teacher Education at Michigan State University. Her research engages with language and literacy practices of immigrant children and families, highlighting the mobility and dynamicity of these practices in a transnational context of migration. Using an ethnographic approach, she examines the ways immigrant children draw on multilingual repertoires, build bilingual identities and mobilize linguistic and cultural knowledge as they move across spaces and geographic borders. Kwon is also interested in exploring how bilingual parents support their children’s language and literacy learning locally and globally. To foreground the voices of bilingual children and families, she designs and employs linguistically responsive and child-centered research methods. She has published in journals such as International Journal of Bilingual Education and Bilingualism, Bilingual Research Journal, Language Arts, and Language and Education.
