Dr. Dai Kojima has been serving as the Sexual Diversity Studies Undergraduate Director since November 2017 and teaches courses Introduction to Queer of Colour Critique (SDS375) and Special Topics: Sexuality & Health (SDS382) for the program. Additionally, Dai is a SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellow at York University’s Department of Anthropology and Centre for Feminist Research. As a cultural ethnographer with interests in Queer Anthropology of Migration, Transnational Gender and Sexuality Studies, and Critical Media Studies, Dai’s research, teaching, and community work combine transnational, postcolonial, and queer of colour analytical approaches to sexual diversity and politics. Relatedly, his pedagogical goal is to encourage engagements with intersectional, comparative and culturally-situated perspectives on social justice praxis. His latest publications appear in TOPIA (co-guest editor for the Special Issue “Queer/Asian/Canadian”), Anthropologica, and Resilience.
