About

Profile imageThis site is archived and no longer active. Please find more recent updates on my site at https://anitaconchita.org

I am Digital Pedagogy Librarian at the University of Michigan Library. I was formerly the Digital Scholar at Whittier College’s Digital Liberal Arts center, and a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in the Humanities and Visiting Assistant Professor of Asian American Studies at the University of California, Los Angeles. My research interests include the literature and media of migration and labor, Asian American studies, globalization and neoliberalism, postcolonial studies, and transnationalism. I’m especially invested in the ways gender, race, class, and nationality affect how the temporary and the precarious is experienced.

My work appears in American Quarterly, The Global South, The Journal of e-Media Studies, and Humanities and the Digital (MIT Press). I have previously published on comics in the Asian American literature class. I also serve on the steering committees of HASTAC, FemTechNet, and as a founding member of the #transformDH collective which seeks to incorporate critical cultural studies and social justice work into diverse digital humanities activities.

You can also find me elsewhere online at:
