hello, friends!

My name is christina ong. If you’re here, you probably already knew that (or maybe not).

I use she/her pronouns.

I’m a PhD student in Sociology at the University of Pittsburgh currently studying how political activism and artistic production around anti-imperialism, anti-racism, and anti-sexism influenced the development of Asian America in the 1970s-1980s through an in-depth case study of New York City’s Basement Workshop.

I’m broadly interested in topics related to diaspora, racial justice activism, and transnational feminisms. As a researcher and educator, I am always challenging myself to expand my skillset, employing both historical and digital methods whenever possible.

When I’m not working on my graduate studies, you can find me writing screenplays and producing my podcast, Seats At The Table.
