Academic and Research Bio

Dr. Jason Ho coordinates the department’s internship program and teaches courses on films, critical theory, queer studies, popular culture, globalization, and urban culture. His teaching and research interests include Asian cinema, film and cultural studies, gender and sexuality, queer studies, popular culture, and urban studies. He has published in LGBT Transnational Identity in Media: Post Colonial Post Queer (Palgrave Macmillan 2012), the inaugural issue of Trespassing Journal (2012), and In Critical Proximity: The Visual Memories of Stanley Kwan (in Chinese, Joint Publishing 2007), among others, and his forthcoming publications are on contemporary Korean and Mainland Chinese cinema. He is currently working on two major projects: a queer reading of gender and sexuality in American Horror Story, and a comparative study of Hong Kong and Japan on un/happiness, urban spaces, and cultural phenomenon. He is also developing new research areas in gay activism, minority rights, and disability studies.
