Emily Hue, University of California, Riverside
Emily Hue is an assistant professor of Ethnic Studies and member of the Southeast Asian, Text, Ritual and Performance program at the University of California, Riverside. She is currently working on a book manuscript, tentatively titled “Economies of Vulnerability: Humanitarian Imperialism and Performance in the Burmese Diaspora,” an interdisciplinary project which uses visual and performance analysis and ethnographic interviews to explore how diasporic artists and activists use bodily abstraction and in some cases, self-injury to express their vulnerability to the challenges of military rule as well as resettlement. She serves on editorial boards of the Critical Ethnic Studies Journal and the Asian Diasporic Visual Cultures in the Americas. Her most recent work has appeared in the Literature Interpretation Theory Journal and Women’s Studies Quarterly.
