Quynh Nhu Le earned her Ph.D. and M.A. in English Literature at the University of California, Santa Barbara. She received her B.A. at the University of Colorado, Boulder. Her research and teaching emerges at the intersection of comparative race and settler colonial studies, Asian American studies, Indigenous studies, and theories of affect and embodiment. She is currently working on a book manuscript which traces the intimate architecture of contemporary Asian and Indigenous cross-representations in the Americas. The book argues that these imaginative sites of cross-community entanglements register the asymmetries of racial and colonial processes, and gesture to the vexed constitution of alliances and solidarities. Dr. Le has been awarded the McKnight Junior Faculty Development Fellowship (2015-2016), the New Researcher Grant (2015-2016), the Humanities Institute Summer Grant (2015), and the Arts and Sciences Award (2015).
