Aimee Bahng is an assistant professor of Gender and Women’s Studies at Pomona College. She is the author of Migrant Futures: Decolonizing Speculation in Financial Times (Duke UP, 2018), which examines narrations of futurity across various platforms—from speculative fiction by writers of color to the financial speculations of the 1%. With teaching and research interests at the conjuncture of transnational Asian/American cultural studies and feminist-queer science and technology studies, she has published a range of articles on techno-Orientalism and Asian/American speculative fiction. She is currently working on another book manuscript, tentatively titled “Transpacific Ecologies,” which reroutes discussions about the new materialisms through feminist, decolonial science studies, focusing on transpacific contexts of nuclear fallout and ecological disaster.
