  • About

    Peggy Lee is a doctoral student at the department of American Culture. Her work is interested in queer and feminist anti-violence organizing, feminist of color cultural productions, and the nexus of therapeutic discourses, healing, and the state. She is a writer and poet, and past recipient of the Asian American Writer’s Workshop Open City Fellowship. As a scholar, she is invested in community/narrative-centered methods like critical ethnography and oral history. She has used them in various academic/community projects: from gathering oral histories of long-time Manhattan Chinatown residents to helping facilitate intergenerational Brooklyn youth and elder interviews to build more resilient planning capacities in wake of increased climate emergencies. She received her M.A. in Performance Studies at New York University and B.A. in Women’s Studies at UC Santa Barbara.
