My research examines how technology is understood through progress, using a speculative framework to instead imagine a future that centers the materiality of an economy that is predicated on racialized and gendered labor. I challenge high-tech futurity by thinking about which futures are made into material realities and which are not, by reading how the future is often constructed through narratives of human and nonhuman agency. I read Asian American women’s cultural production for alternate orientations to liberal personhood through intimate labor. My research interests include Asian American cultural studies, women of color feminism, gendered and racialized labor, and techno-orientalism.
