I am an interdisciplinary scholar of race and migration trained in American studies and gender & sexuality studies. My first book The Chinese Century and the City of Gold is an ethnography of contemporary Chinese world-making in Johannesburg, South Africa that explores the reconfiguration of race, capitalism, and empire underway in the 21st “Chinese Century” and their historical entanglements with Euro-American empire-making and global racial hierarchies. My work has been published in Scholar & Feminist Online, Radical History ReviewInternational Journal of Cultural Studies, Public Culture, and Verge, as well as edited volumes Anxious Joburg: Space, Affect, and Experience in a Global South City (Wits UP/NYU Press, 2020) and New World Orderings: China and the Global South (Duke UP, forthcoming January 2023), and online in Anthropology News and The Chronicle of Higher Education. My research has been funded by the Social Science Research Council and the Wenner-Gren Foundation for Anthropological Research and supported by the Centre for Indian Studies at the University of Witwatersrand. Since arriving at Dartmouth in 2018, I have been involved with the Asia/America working group, the Consortium of Studies in Race, Migration, and Sexuality, and previously the South-South Forum. Working with students is the best part of my job. In WGSS, I teach courses on feminist/queer theory, methods, and praxis and also advise the Sexual Assault Peer Alliance.
