    ​​Sunmin Yoon is an ethnomusicologist specializing in Mongolian folk songs. Working closely with singers whose careers have spanned both Socialist and post-Socialist Mongolia, her research explores Mongolian folk song genres at the intersections of the politics, dialogues and mobility which exist between rural and urban musical environments, and it interrogates the nature and feasibility of preservation and globalized cultural heritage.

    Her work has appeared in the International Institute for Asian Studies (IIAS) Newsletter, Mongolian Studies, World Literature Today and Smithsonian magazine. She is a recipient of grants and award such as an NEH Summer Institute Program Grant, a CMS Community Engagement Seed Grant, the Diversity Action Committee Program Award at SEM, CIAC Small Research Grants from Association of Asian Studies, and the Dean’s Dissertation Fellowship (Anne Wylie Fellowship) at University of Maryland at College Park. She frequently presents papers in regional and national conferences and currently serves as a council member for the Society of Ethnomusicology, and a board member of the Mongolia Society.

    Dr. Yoon has previously taught survey courses in World Music, Asian Music, Popular World Music (online), and Understanding of Music (online), and seminars in East Asian Music, and in World Music Analysis. At the University of Delaware, she teaches an undergraduate world music survey course.
