Academic Year 2017-2018
Cara Wallis is an associate professor in the Department of Communication at Texas A&M University. She draws upon critical and feminist studies of technology to explore the social and cultural implications of emerging media technologies, particularly how everyday uses and understandings of technology are linked to modes of inclusion and exclusion, empowerment and disempowerment. She is the author of Technomobility in China: Young Migrant Women and Mobile Phones (NYU Press, 2013), which is an ethnographic exploration of the use of mobile phones by young rural-to-urban migrant women working in the low-level service sector in Beijing. Her current manuscript (in progress) is an expansive study of how diverse groups in China engage with social media as a space for agency to pursue self-transformation, security (economic, physical, and emotional), individual aesthetics, and personal ethics. These processes and practices in turn speak to larger social, economic, and cultural transformations taking place in China.
Hoi-eun Kim, Associate Professor of History, will write a prosopographical account of Japanese doctors in colonial Korea (1910-1945), whose number increased from 368 in 1910 to 796 in 1930 and ultimately reached 1,194 in 1943. Kim’s cliometrical study of Japanese doctors’ educational and regional backgrounds, subfields of specialization, social and academic networks, and geographical distributions will significantly enhance our understanding of the nature of medical science in the development and management of Japan’s most significant colony. Not only will it overcome a simplistic overgeneralization of Japanese doctors as mere agents of an oppressive empire, it will provide an important case study of a non-western empire, through which a more comprehensive and nuanced discussion on the entangled relations between medicine and empire may begin.
Carmela Garritano is an associate professor of Africana Studies and Film Studies and author of African Video Movies and Global Desires: A Ghanaian History (Ohio University Press), a 2013 Choice Outstanding Academic Title and winner of the African Literature Association Best First Book award.

Her research has been supported by Fulbright IIE and the West African Research Association, and her writing has been published, or is forthcoming, in African Studies Review, Black Camera, Cinema Journal, Critical Arts, The Cambridge Journal of Postcolonial Literary Inquiry, and Research in African Literatures, among other places.
