Biography

Christine Mok’s research and teaching focus on race and representation and includes Asian American literature and performance, modern and contemporary drama, visual culture, critical race studies, and theories of performance. She has published her research in Journal of Asian American Studies, Theatre Survey, Modern Drama, and PAJ: A Journal of Performance and Art. She is a former managing editor of Theater magazine. She is currently completing her first book project, which uses intermediality and theatricality as critical optics to examine the shifting politics and poetics of inauthenticity in contemporary Asian American performance. She received her Ph.D. in Theatre and Performance Studies from Brown University. She holds an MFA in Dramaturgy and Dramatic Criticism from the Yale School of Drama and an AB in English and Theatre from Dartmouth College.
