Expert Bio

Eve Ng is an associate professor at Ohio University, in the School of Media Arts and Studies and the Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program.

Her research addresses the cultural and political significance of media and the transnational dimensions of LGBTQ activism, falling into three interrelated areas: (1) LGBTQ media production and reception, (2) science fiction narratives and critical posthumanism, and (3) digital media and activism, with the common thread being an engagement with gender, sexuality, class, and nation as intersecting axes of hierarchy. She has been published in leading journals in media studies, gender studies, and development studies, including Communication, Culture, & Critique, Development and Change, Feminist Media Studies, Journal of Film and Video, New Review of Film and Television Studies, Popular Communication, and Transformative Works and Culture, as well as in the edited volumes Gender, Race and Class in Media (Sage, Eds. Gail Dines and Jean Humez, 2011, 2014) and The Routledge Companion to Media and Human Rights (Eds. Howard Tumber and Sylvio Waisbord, 2017).

Ng earned her Ph.D. in Communication and a Graduate Certificate in Advanced Feminist Studies from the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, and also has a Ph.D. in Linguistics from the University at Buffalo (SUNY).

She teaches courses on media and globalization, media representations, gender and globalization, feminist studies, and queer theory, and has also taught in the areas of linguistics and language and culture. She has been interviewed by journalists and documentary makers about media, representation, and culture.
