Current Interests

SooJin Lee's studies in art history have focused on 20th-century arts and visual cultures of North America and East Asia with special interests in the issues of identity, globalization, and cultural hybridization. In both teaching and research, she works across different methodologies, among them media theory, performance theory, feminism, post-colonialism, and transnationalism. She is currently working on a book with Maud Lavin (School of the Art Institute of Chicago) and Fang-Tze Hsu (National University of Singapore) titled East Asian Androgyny: New Femininities in Mass Culture Circulation.
