Lee specializes in 20th-century art history of North America and East Asia with special interests in globalization, cultural hybridization, and related issues of identity. She recently completed her doctoral dissertation, which examines the reception of three female Japanese performance artists' receptions in the Western art world: Yayoi Kusama, Yoko Ono, and Mariko Mori. Lee is also co-authoring a book with Maud Lavin (School of the Art Institute of Chicago) and Fang-Tze Hsu (National University of Singapore) entitled East Asian Androgyny, which explores representations of androgynous femininities circulating in and across contemporary East Asian cultures.
