Society of Scholars
The Society of Scholars is an intellectual community of humanists of diverse generations, academic ranks, and departmental affiliations who contribute to and learn from one another’s work. Each year, approximately eight faculty and three dissertation research fellowships support members of the Society of Scholars. Scholars in year-long residence at the University of Washington may be invited to participate as well. The group meets biweekly throughout the year to discuss their research in progress.

At the Seams of the World: Gender and Decoloniality in Hong Kong Contemporary Art
At the Seams of the World examines the overlooked relationship between gender and decoloniality in Hong Kong that is visualized through transcultural and translingual examinations of contemporary art. Countering the marginal status of gender-related discourse in Hong Kong, this project unearths its political centrality by relating gender to Hong Kong’s colonial conditions and articulates how contemporary art visualizes decolonial practices of gender—illuminating alternative horizons for a city at the heart of global, competing capitalisms.
