A presentation by Dr. Sik Ying Ho, University of Hong Kong
In dialogue with Profesors King-kok Cheung and Russell Leong, UCLA
Dr. Sik Ying Ho is Associate Professor, Department of Social Work and Social Administration, University of Hong Kong. She is internationally recognized for her work on male and female sexualities and published widely in international journals in the U.S., Britain, and Asia.
One of the important themes that runs through her work is how Chinese women in the greater China region are captured by, but manage to overcome, the existing descriptions and theorizations of women, their identities, and sexualities. She has worked to make social work more intellectually stimulating, championing the study of gender and sexuality.
King-Kok Cheung is a scholar of Asian American literature at UCLA and has taught and lectured widely in China, Taipei, Hong Kong, Japan, Burma, and in Europe. Her areas of specialization include sexuality and gender representation of males and females in Asian American literature. She has published essays on Chinese male sexuality, female representation, interracial romance, in books published by Columbia University Press, University of Hawaii Press, and in journals including Meleus.
Russell C. Leong is a writer and editor of the journal of Asian American Studies, Amerasia, at UCLA. He has edited and written on Asian American sexualities, on culture and media, and on film.
With special thanks to Norma Corral of the YRL, and Marjorie Lee of the Asian American Studies Reading Room, and the sponsorship of the UCLA Asian American Studies Center.
