Biography

My research interests center around the question of how immigration, race, gender, and citizenship produce discourses of cultural and national belonging in 20th century U.S. history. In particular, I focus on how Asian Americans, particularly Hmong Americans, create themselves as intelligible subjects through the production of cultural artifacts, community spaces, and literature.
