Pursuing an interdisciplinary doctoral at the University of Toronto in women and gender studies, education, and sexual diversity studies; Mr. L. T. follows the lineages of socialist and transnational feminism, queer Marxism and queer Asian studies, paying particular attention to migration, class, infrastructure, reproduction, affect and intimacy in post-socialist China and within the queer Asian diaspora in North America. Mr. L. T. current project is tentatively titled ‘Queer Social Reproduction: infrastructure, platform and post-socialism’. His previous research and creative writings have appeared and will appear in journals such as QED, Rethinking Marxism, Journal of Canadian Studies, Invert, Higher Education for the Future and Intersectional Apocalypse. With Rose Ann Torres and Coly Chu, Mr. L. T. is working on an edited book Asian Canada is Burning to be published in 2022 by Fernwood, also a board member of the Society for Socialist Studies and the chairperson for QTBIPOC caucus at the National Women’s Studies Association. Being in the academia, he sees gaps existing within methods and theories taught in China and in North American Anglophone discourse. This is particular true for humanities and social sciences. To this end, I will be able to provide academic engagement, especially for students who are interested in pursuing an academic trajectory in the humanities and social sciences in North America, for the minds that question and for the potentials these sensibilities entail. Mr. L. T. provide three basic models of mentorship programs: critical thinking for beginners (for high school students and first/second year undergraduates) and advanced critical theory and methods (for third/fourth year undergrads who wish to study humanities and social sciences in North America). These will cover some basics for critical humanities, cultural studies, sociology, anthropology, human geography, urban studies and women and gender studies. Further, he also provides advanced level mentoring in specific disciplines: queer theory, women and gender studies as well as cultural studies.
