Caren Freeman

Caren Freeman is a cultural anthropologist and the Director of Studies at Hereford Residential College. Her irrepressible wanderlust has led her to many places around the globe, but South Korea and China have ensorcelled her. Her previous research on gender, marriage and ethnonational identity in contemporary South Korea and China produced a book entitled Making and Faking Kinship. Caren’s current project sets out to make sense of the skyrocketing divorce rate in South Korea. When she is not advising international students in the ISO or contemplating other worlds, she can be found meandering the trails on O’Hill with Meimei (87 dog years) or watching Benhui (15) and Sohie (11) play the beautiful game.
