Bio

Christine So is an Associate Professor in the Department of English.

She has published in Feminist Studies, MELUS, and in East Main Street: Asian American Popular Culture. Her book, Economic Citizens: A Narrative of Asian American Visibility (Temple University Press, 2007) traces the many economic questions--what money can buy, how money is lost, how money is circulated, and what labor or objects are worth--that have dominated certain Asian American texts . Focusing on books that have achieved mainstream popularity, Economic Citizens demonstrates that a rhetoric of social equivalence has depended uneasily and unsuccessfully upon the logic of capital. Her current project investigates Asian American equivalence in the context of ethical acts of recognition and redress.
