I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Global Studies at St. Lawrence University. The courses that I normally teach are: GS 201: Race, Culture and Identity, cross listed with Caribbean and Latin American Studies and Native American Studies. GS 250: La Frontera: Cultural Identities in the U.S./Mexico Border, cross listed with Caribbean and Latin American Studies and Native American Studies, GS 302: Theories of Cultural Studies, GS 290: Qualitative Methods; GS 247: Clinic on the effects of Globalization on Human Rights; and in the summers, I teach the course “Cultural Ecology and the Ejido System in Yucatan.” I am Chinese-Mexican and I have lived in various parts of the world. One of the gratifications of being a faculty member at St. Lawrence University is to have enjoyed the institutional support to link my teaching, scholarship and service in a holistic manner. I have taken students to the US/Mexico border on regular basis as part of the course: La Frontera: Cultural Identities in the US Mexico Border. The summer course “Cultural Ecology and The Ejido System in Yucatan” was developed with a Mellon Grant. The students and me travel to Mayan communities and are able to see some of the best archeological sites and beaches of Mexico. We work together with Faculty from the Universidad Autonoma Chapingo, in the Centro Regional de la Peninsula de Yucatan. I enjoy working with students to find out their own research interest and passions, particularly the courses that involve exposing students to methodological and moral issues involved in research such as the local and the global, text and context, processual analysis and multiperspectivity. I have been quite interested in integrating students’ learning with issues of social justice. I enjoyed the experience and opportunity to be the Director of the St. Lawrence University Spain Program during the academic year 2008-2009 and I will be directing the program again during the academic year 2014-2015. I was the coordinator of the Caribbean and Latin American Program from the Spring 2010 to Fall 2013.
