In addition to my position in the History Department, I'm an affiliate faculty in
Women and Gender Studies, Asian and Asian American Studies, and Africana Studies.
I have held a research fellowship at Australian National University (2010). My first
book was A Feeling of Belonging: Asian American Women’s Public Culture, 1930–1960 (NYU Press, 2006). My second book, Anna May Wong: Performing the Modern (2019) has been recently published by Temple University Press.
