Dr. Hyun Kyung You

The College of Professional Studies is very pleased to welcome Dr. Hyun-Kyung You as an Assistant Professor in the Child Development Department at Humboldt State University. Hyun-Kyung is interested in the study of the dialectic interaction between agency and sociocultural systems using the social constructionist and feminist perspectives. In particular, Hyun-Kyung's research aims at better understanding of motherhood in the context of child's disability, specifically autism spectrum disorders.

Her research interests also include cross-cultural understanding of motherhood, acculturation experiences of immigrant families with young children, and transnational families with young children.
