Hi. I’m Li.
I’m a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Center for Humanistic Inquiry at Amherst College, where I study media and culture. My current research investigates live presentations of emerging technologies — demos, expos, product launches — in order to theorize the relationship between performance and mediation under late capitalism. Drawing on frameworks from media studies, performance studies, and feminist studies, this work explores the social implications of technological innovation.
I have a PhD in Communication Studies, which I completed at McGill University in 2017. My publications include articles in Feminist Media Studies and Women & Performance. Online, my writing includes media criticism at Antenna and Flow, theater criticism at OffOffOnline, and an other project.
