Christine Kim is an Associate Professor in the Department of English Language and Literatures at UBC and the editor of Canadian Literature. Previously, she was an Associate Professor of English at Simon Fraser University, and a founding co-Director of SFU’s Institute for Transpacific Cultural Research. Her research focuses on diasporic literatures and cultures in Canada, and considers how they are embedded in global structures of settler colonialism, imperialism, and nationalism. Christine is the author of The Minor Intimacies of Race: Asian Publics in North America (University of Illinois Press, 2016) and co-editor of special issues of Inter-Asia Journal of Cultural Studies, Canadian Literature, a section of West Coast Line, and Cultural Grammars of Nation, Diaspora, and Indigeneity in Canada (WLUP, 2012). Her current SSHRC-funded project, Brutalist Imaginary: North Korea in a Post-Cold War Order, examines representations of North Korea, cultural fantasies, and Cold War legacies.
