Transcultural Fandom and East Asian Transnational Media
I research transnational/transcultural fandoms and transnational media co-production and distribution. My work has been published in East Asian Journal of Popular Culture, Transformative Works and Cultures, Participations, Asian Cinema, and Mechademia: Second Arc. I’ve also contributed to Fandom: Identities and Communities in a Mediated World (NYU Press, 2017), The Routledge Companion to Media Fandom (Routledge, 2018), A Companion to Media Fandom and Fan Studies (Wiley-Blackwell, 2018), and Fan Studies Primer: Method, Research, Ethics (Iowa, 2021). I currently teach courses in media fandom, East Asian film and media, television, and videographic criticism in the Department of Media Studies at the University of Virginia.
