Sun Hee Lee
I enjoy teaching many different courses including Reading in the World, courses in American literature, and courses especially in my area of specialty, U.S. ethnic literatures. My specific research area is contemporary Native American, U.S. Latino, and Asian American literatures; currently I am working on a project that compares these minority traditions after the ethnic nationalist movements of the 1970's. I also like to teach drama and film and have written on various playwrights such as Suzan-Lori Parks and David Henry Hwang, and I have recently published a book on analyzing the films of Tim Burton. My love of texts goes beyond the traditional mediums. I love good T.V. (recently delivered a paper on Big Love) and good (and bad) Korean dramas.
Other than teaching, researching, and consuming texts, I love spending time with my two dogs Alu and Gobi (Hindi for potato and cauliflower) and my two young sons.
