Major Areas of Scholarship

Eve Ng’s 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 published in journals including Communication, Culture, & Critique, Development and Change, Feminist Media Studies, Journal of Film and Video, Popular Communication, and Transformative Works and Culture, as well as in 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). She has also been interviewed by journalists and documentary makers about media, representation, and culture.

Dr. Ng earned her Ph.D. in Communication and a Graduate Certificate in Advanced Feminist Studies from UMass-Amherst, and also has a Ph.D. in Linguistics from the State University of New York at Buffalo, and a Bachelor of Arts and a Bachelor of Science with Honours from the University of Melbourne.
