Dr. Grace Yeh received her Ph.D. in English from UCLA. She also holds degrees from Duke and Georgetown. Her research interests include comparative ethnic literature, cultural representations of race, gender and sexuality, and the politics of memory. She co-directed the exhibit Routes and Roots: Cultivating Filipino American History on the Central Coast for the South County Historical Society in Arroyo Grande, California. At Cal Poly, she teaches Asian American and Comparative Ethnic Studies courses, and her courses often have a community-based learning component. She has engaged students in a number of public history projects, including a Japanese American internment oral history project, a Filipino American oral history project, and a local public bicycle tour through a critical ethnic studies lens. Though she's made herself at home in California, you'll know that Grace is not from around here when she slips in a few "y'alls" during lecture (she was born and raised in Georgia).
