Assistant Professor of English
“I teach at the intersection of transnational Asian/American studies, queer theory, and science fiction. My current book project, Speculative Acts in Neoliberal Times, investigates how stories about the future, whether they emerge from science fiction or economic projections, bear a particularly fraught relationship to Orientalist imaginaries that narrativize Asia as pre- or post-modern but never of the moment.”
