Danielle Wong is an Assistant Professor in the Department of English Language and Literatures at the University of British Columbia. She received her Ph.D. and M.A. degrees from the Department of English and Cultural Studies at McMaster University. Prior to joining UBC’s English Department, she was a postdoctoral associate in the Asian American Studies Program at Cornell University. Her research and teaching interests focus on historical and contemporary relationships between race, gender, sexuality, labour, migration, Empire, and “new” technologies. Her book project, tentatively titled Inorganic Asian North American Lives, analyzes Asian North American new media productions and performances of inorganicity by tracing a genealogy of cultural discourses that figure Asianness as a virtuality and a form of mediation.
