PUBLICATIONS (Archived)
Most of my work touches on philopoetic questions on self, time and language, and my writings, most broadly seen, belong in the field of the Theoretical Humanities; my own intellectual genre arises from the intersecting lines of (1) 20th Century Continental Philosophy & Early Modern Philosophy/(2) Feminist & Gender Theory/(3) Critical Race Theory & Postcolonial Studies/(4) Asian & Asian American Philopoetics/ (5) Textual Aesthetics, Literary Theory & Comparative Literature. My publications tend to be intercategorical & interdisciplinary, although each piece shows a thematic focus.
