Introduction: My main research interest is women’s transnational migration in East and Southeast Asia. I am particularly interested in how Asian women’s lives in the local communities are connected to global dynamics through transnational market mechanisms. My previous research dealt with transnational marriage brokerage in Taiwan and my current research looks into the lives and work of foreign spouses engaging in sex and entertainment work in Taiwan. The courses I teach cover feminist methodology, gender and migration, marriage and family, and gender and society.
