In my work, I am interested in the reception of transnational media and the ways in which audiences may be able to employ their transnational background in interpreting media texts. I currently look at the filmic representations of the Asian male body and the ways in which the figure performs acts of masculinity and manhood. I employ a transnational perspective in order to move beyond North Atlantic logics to reconsider and reconfigure the ways in which we talk about intersectional lines of nation, race, generation, and gender. Future projects hope to examine these issues of Eurocentrism, transnationality, media, and audiences as they pertain to representations of race and gender on the Internet.
