Summer Kim Lee


Visiting Lecturer of English

Summer Kim Lee earned her Ph.D. in Performance Studies at New York University.  Her research examines how performances of detachment enact women of color feminist critiques of transnational representations of race and gender in contemporary popular culture.  In her first book project, Lee focuses on the invisibility and illegibility of Asian American women in queer, feminist discourse as productive for creating forms of political critique wary of the limitations of representable, stable identities.  She has published in the Journal of Popular Music Studies and from 2013-2015, served as the Managing Editor of Women & Performance: a journal of feminist theory.
