Lee’s areas of interest are the advent of race and gender normativities in the West and the implications of colonialism on contemporary social thought, institutional practices, white supremacy and anti-“Indian” and anti-“black” violence. Lee received her Ph.D. in ethnic studies, Native American Studies at University of California, Berkeley. She is working on her first book, which examines the early formations of western race ideology and gender normativities, with particular focus on the gendered racialization of Native Americans. Lee’s work also compares the anti-colonial critiques of indigenous and women of color in the U.S., Caribbean and Australia to consider how anti-colonialism shapes Native American, indigenous, women of color and queer activism today.
