Erin Yu-Tien Huang is Assistant Professor of East Asian Studies and Comparative Literature, and an executive member of Princeton’s Committee for Film Studies. She is the co-founder of Asia Theory Visuality—an intellectual platform that harbors collaborative thinking on experimental and theoretical approaches to Asian Studies. She received her Ph.D. in Comparative Literature with a Graduate Feminist Emphasis in Gender & Sexuality Studies from the University of California, Irvine. She is an interdisciplinary scholar and comparatist working on the intersections of urban studies and Chinese cinema studies. Her work focuses on the cultures of China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. Actively deconstructing “Asia” as a geopolitical and economic formation, she is interested in approaches that problematize the disciplinary boundary between East and Southeast Asia(s). Her research interests broadly include film and media studies, Marxism(s), feminist theory, the global imaginaries of socialism and post-socialism, urban theory, and phenomenology.
